Dear Friends of Happy Trails,
It has been an exciting summer!
First, Night at the Races was a huge success! We fed 520 people and raised $124,000 for Happy Trails. Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, contributors (the race prizes were amazing!), and attendees.
Then, Happy Trails’ Summer Camp hosted 25 campers, who had fun learning about animals, nature, and music. I especially want to thank the presenting sponsor -Bank of the Sierra- and all of the Happy Trails friends who donated and made the event possible.
I am excited to welcome two new board members: Elizabeth Jacques and Cindy Brown. Elizabeth is a nancial advisor for Morgan Stanley with an extensive equine background, including volunteering at Happy Trails, and is a recent graduate of Leadership Visalia. Cindy has been an Agriculture Education teacher in Porterville for over 35 years, and brings a strong Happy Trails presence to S/E Tulare County. I look forward to working with both of them!
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for Round Up on Friday, October 6, 2017 in the Sence Pavilion at Happy Trails. This is a fun BBQ dinner which showcases our facility, horses and riders. I would love your involvement! To take part, please call the office at (559) 688-8685.
Dr. Neal Spiro, President of the Board
