January 2012 Newsletter

Happy New Year!!!!  I hope that everyone had a great holiday season and that Santa was good to you! It doesn't seem possible that we are starting a new year already, time seems to fly by.

 
We do have our regular business meetings coming up in Arlington, Ohio at the Good Hope Lutheran Church. The meeting dates are as follows: January 15th, February 12th, and March 11th. The meetings are held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.. Potluck to follow the business meeting. Please mark your calendars!!!  We hope to see you there. Remember, everyone is welcome to join us.
 
The club elected some new officers at the annual banquet in November.  The new officers are Kim Mack, for a one year term, Angie Hohenbrink and Mark Newman, for a 3 year term. Congratulations to all.  We would also like to "Thank" Julie Emmons and Sandy Young for their participation on the board. These ladies are leaving us this year. Thanks again for a job well done.
 
Our first event of the year is the Maumee Bay Sleigh Festival. The date for this event is February 4th and 5th, 2012. This will be held at the Vail Equestrian Riding Center in Oregon, Ohio(East of Toledo). Due to the word limit of the article I am not posting it, but there are flyers and information regarding the event. Please contact Jackie Minges at 734-856-6122 or email: JMinges@hotmail.com. or via the web at www.sleighfestival.com . This event has something for everyone interested in sleighs. Please check out the website for details. This was a great time last year and has grown into a two day event this year! Don't pass it by, Please take the time to investigate the information. You will be glad you did!
 
This is also a great time for everyone to start thinking about hosting a drive, getting their equipment ready, just doing some planning in general. Please let the Board of Directors know if there is something special you would like to do during the year, maybe something different than what we have done in the past years. Suggestions are always welcome.  So please, let us know. You can't expect change without putting your two cents worth in.
 
I think this is going to do it for this issue,,, as I get more information I will report it. Until next month,
 
Enjoy!  Roger Higgins Jr. / Reporter
