Florida Sport Horse Club 2016-2017 Year-End Report

It’s always wise to evaluate a group’s activities at particular points in time.  The end of our club year is a good time to do this.  I’m very proud that–as small as our club is–we do so very much!  We have a great President and active, collaborative members who are always ready to step up and help.  So here’s what we did during our 2016-2017 club year:

  • Added monthly dine-arounds as a club activity
  • Placed an ad in the Osceola Wagon Train program
  • Ran the concession stand at Triple B’s November 5th, 2016 Charity Fun Day at Aldine Combee arena (funds went toward donated picnic tables at Lake Louisa and Colt Creek State Parks)
