Only a few days away from the PPG in Hampton this Saturday. I have the following members signed up to go:
If there are others interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by end of day today. The cost is $20 - which can be e-transferred to me at that email as well. Stacey need to send off the final numbers to Jenn Hanson (Hampton Pony Club) TODAY. You do not need horse experience to participate!
2. Because of the PPG day, there will not be Pony Club at Shadow Lane Farm on Sunday.
3. I'm attaching information about renewing memberships for 2017. Please read the instructions and carefully complete the paperwork. IF YOU'D LIKE YOUR 2017 MEMBERSHIP TO BE A CHRISTMAS PRESENT, we need to know ASAP so we can get your "present" ready to put under the tree :)
4. As you may have heard, we had an unfortunate accident happen last Sunday with the older kids. Abby, one of our members, was bitten by Dash (the boarder who lives in my barn). I want to let everyone know that safety is my absolute top priority, as the kids know - I am very strict about safety in the barn and around the horses. Abby did not do anything unsafe. Dash's owner has been notified and was extremely upset - she is voluntarily removing him from my barn. This was very upsetting to our members and me. If you can please explain to your child that he won't be there much longer (she is looking at options right now to determine what happens next), that would be great. The most important thing is that Abby is ok and is looking forward to returning to her favorite place, the barn.
5. Our Fundraising Committee has ordered chocolate bars for our members to sell - these will be distributed soon - once the committee sends me an update on schedule, etc. I will send this to everyone.
