We started off the year with a lot of fun. We had good member attendance at our January general meeting along with five guests! Our annual soup contest yielded a big win for Gene McBride with his Butternut Squash soup. Ron Lowery came in a close second with his famous chili. I’m sure Ron will be back to try to reclaim his title as SMHA#1 Cook next year!
It seems like spring is in the air which is awesome for January! I am getting excited for a new year of riding and fun. We have outlined our 2018 schedule and it is posted in this month’s eventer. Obviously, things can change but we hope to succeed in fulfilling these events. I will speak briefly about the first couple of events at our February general meeting. I will also have a little announcement so make sure you’re there!
This months meeting will be our movie night. We will be providing popcorn and candy for a nominal fee. The movie will be “Harry and the Snowman”. If you haven’t seen this one it is well worth it! It is a heartwarming horse story of hope and possibility.
As you know, this is our 50th anniversary of SMHA! The club was established in 1968. We are starting to plan a campout to celebrate the occasion. We hope to have the event on July 28. We are still determining the location so stay tuned for more information and keep the date open!
I’m looking forward to a fun and successful year for our club. We are off to a fine start so let’s keep up the good work! Spread the word about our great little club so others can join in the fun!
