Well there has been plenty going on. It’s time to get everyone back on track!
We are the proud owners of property we have purchased. It has a groomer barn and a house. The Tuckers and Skandics fit in very comfortably. There is a work bench and plenty of room for equipment repairs to be done right there. Upstairs is plenty of storage for our small equipment.
We have some work to do in the house before we can start having our meetings there. The heating is completed. We need to paint and change some lighting. We already took out the hearth, pulled up the carpet and are ready to paint the floor. This will be our meeting room. We still have some cleaning to do in the kitchen. Please don’t hesitate, we need volunteers. The chairs and tables are on their way. Any help from members would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to Patrick Rowe for donating an air compressor, heaters and a 2½ ton jack for the groomer shop.
A big thank you to Robert Shaw and Tory & Cindy Olsen for their generous monetary donations.
Riding for The Cure now has our own web site and face book page check it out! We have 11 sponsors already! This year we have three levels for sponsorship: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
