BSDC February 2012 Newsletter

 

Happy Valentines Day!  Can you believe it? The drives will be starting before you know it!

We do have our regular business meetings coming up in Arlington, Ohio at the Good Hope Lutheran Church. The remaining meeting dates are 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. I don't have any updates on what we will be doing in April. We usually have the Safety Clinic, but there haven't been any plans made to date. I will keep everyone updated.

Reminder,as reported last month,  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 . 

I do not have a list of officers yet. The Board of Directors are meeting to organize this years duties. I will have the list next month. I will have the contact numbers for the the Board members also. We should have several updates and news in the next issue.

The club has a new charter member. At our annual banquet, Ann Bell was presented the honor of charter member. Congratulations Ann! We don't know what we would do without you. 

I would like to remind everyone that at our meetings Angie Hohenbrink establishes a library for us to use. It is really quite nice, and she will let you sign some things out if you need to. She does this out of the goodness of her heart. We are very lucky to have this reference available to us. Thanks Angie, this is very much appreciated.

This is a great time to plan a drive or an event for the club. It takes a lot of time and effort to plan events, but the rewards are worth it. Its great having a carriage ride on a nice day, in the beautiful countryside. Its also a good time to let the board know of any suggestions that you might have. 

There is always an open invitation for everyone to join us, come and check us out!

Until next month,

Enjoy!
