Meeting Minutes from November, 2012

November's meeting was held at the Saddle Club on the 28th and begun at 7:09 pm. Our American pledge was led by Lauren and our 4-H pledge by Jacob.

We have no dues and no expenses. Our current balance is $150.00.

Some things we discussed were, the workshop at the Vancouver Hilton who is taking down ideas for different booths/workshops, so if you have any good ideas, let Mary Jo know.

Also we wanted everyone who is a club member to know that you are most definitely allowed to attend the 4-H leader meetings and that they are full of useful information if you wanted to go.

We also talked about the medal program. The medal program committee has 3 levels, bronze, silver, and gold. There is a set of medals for each age group and you have to advance level by level on a variety of riding and written tests.

There is a Jumping Clinic on April 2nd from three to five  at the saddle club; if you would like to attend, please sign up at least one week in advance.

We discussed some fundraising ideas too. We were thinking that we could volunteer at the Winter Woolies and they would pay us in class tickets. If you are interested please confirm with Mary Jo.

Our enrollments are due on December 14th so make sure you get that turned in soon, although new members have until March to turn theirs in.

The Clover Crest annual Christmas party is going to be on December 19th at 7:00 pm at the Kukula's residence. There will be a secret santa, awards, food, and more.
