Therefore, we’ll form an events committee made up of 4-6+ members so that they can begin going over not only our regular annual events and getting things on the calendar AHEAD of time, but also our fundraisers, camping trips, clinics, etc. So bring your notes and we’ll make a list of what we want to attend throughout the year and help them get started on their planning!
Also, I have our 2019 Cowgirl Calendars available, so be sure to bring your $$ for the calendars you ordered.
And…we’ll announce the winner of our year-long raffle for a free year of membership dues!  These were the raffle tickets you filled out at every meeting you attended!  We’ll be doing this again in 2019 so be sure to attend as many meetings as you can and get your name in the pot a total of 12 times!!
