President & Directors Message
Hope everyone had a good summer.  We hope you all did well at the shows. And those of you involved in trail riding will welcome the cool weather. We had some bumps along the way this summer. I had to have surgery from an accident. And others had illnesses and were swamped at work.  We look forward to moving  ahead and will keep you up dated.
The officers and directors welcome suggestions regarding speakers and other activities you would like us to plan. Feel free to call or email any of us.

There are no bereavements to report at this time.
