SATURDAY VOLUNTEERS FOR HORSE TRIALS SET-UP
We are in need of additional people for the Saturday AM set-up starting at 9 AM. This only takes a couple of hours as well, and no experience is needed. Please contact Kathy Feehery, firstname.lastname@example.org, ff you can help on Saturday.
MORE FENCE JUDGES NEEDED & ONE MORE DRESSAGE STEWARD
This Sunday is our October Horse Trials and we are in real need of a few more volunteers. Fence judging is only for a couple of hours and includes lunch and watching horses jump over our pretty fences. Please contact Michelle Doucette, our Volunteer Coordinator, email@example.com. to sign up, so she can avoid panicking.
We are hoping our event will not be affected by Hurricane Matthew but you never know, so please check our website, wnrdc.com and/or our Facebook page. We will post there if we have to cancel.
Congratulations to Ralph Williams, winner of our summer Volunteer Raffle. Ralph has been a stalwart fence judge for many years at our Horse Trials, and we have seen him as a competitor/participant at other of our events in the past.
ANNUAL MEETING & NOMINATIONS
Once again, time is coming for our Annual Meeting. It will be held Friday, November 11th. We need someone to volunteer their house. It would be very much appreciated. Elections, planning for next year, Volunteer Awards (Volunteer of Year, Lifetime Achievement, and Fall Raffle) will be announced, and there is always good food and people.
We have 3 Board terms that are ending and the position of Vice President will be open. Allison Aamodt and Peter Clark, who are current Board members, will be running again.
Now is the time to nominate someone you feel would do a good job of filling the position (be sure to ask them if they are interested first!). You can also nominate yourself if you are interested. If you want more information, call or email Joan Carlson at 978-510-1587/carlsondq01@gmail .com. We need all nominations by 10/24.
Our ever popular Yankee Swap will be on Friday, December 9th at the home of Catherine and Ralph Marrone, 251 River Rd., W. Newbury. Mark your calendars for fun, and more details will be coming as the date gets closer.
