Bring on SPRING !!!!!!

Just a quick note here from the president...

I would just like to say how proud I am of our association. With both members new and old we have shown a great love for the Percheron horse. As many of you know the world Percheron congress was held in October. It was great to see such world class horses so close to us for once. I truly feel that all of our members who attended and exhibited at the Congress, represented our association wonderfully. Personally I had a blast. I'm sure others did as well. Some of our members even came home with first place ribbons and trophies. It was great to make new friends from near and far, who share the same love for the Percheron horse.

I would like to thank Brian and Stacie Lynch for putting on a world class show. I'm sure there were many sleepless nights and endless phone calls and emails. Also a thanks to Bill and Terry Clark, and Tom and Shannon Stevens for manning the hospitality booth at the congress. Also I would personally like to thank every single one of our board members of our club, you have shown me that with fellowship and determination we can weather the storm. In closing, I hope everyone has a very Merry (Yes, I'm gonna say it) CHRISTMAS !!!!!!! And a safe and happy New Year.   Tom Sposato
