Notes from the Board (April)

Hopefully we have finally seen the last of winter we have had our first clinic of the year and it was a huge success. Thank you to member Heidi Nottlemen for organizing it. At the writing of this article the Dressage symposium will have taken place. All of our shows are ready to go and you shall find the entry for our first show in this newsletter and it also can be found on the website. One thing that we really need to be able to continue as a club is a new President, Vice-President and treasurer, and a few board members. There are many qualified members who can easily take over the role of President. Many people have little or no experience in these positions before taking them on for our club.  It is not as hard as you think, and you will have other experienced members to help you learn the ropes. Please think about giving back to the club and the equestrian community.

This club that has grown so much and is running a very popular and well attended show series as well as very informative clinics may continue. My term will expire at the end of December. Step forward now so that you can take the opportunity and work with the board and get used to everything and start the club off to another get year in 2016.

Thanks for being a member,
Donna Legere
