AHASFV President's Message — January, 2015

Happy New Year to All!!!

I am very proud to once again be President of our amazing AHASFV club. If you ever wondered what all we do, please be sure to read the wonderful synopsis of our club and programs in a recent article written by another past President, Meaghan Shaffer, in the following sections of our newsletter this month.

Thank you all for your participation as members and as attendees of our events and for your continued support! Special thanks to all our board members, past and present, for making our club such a gift to the equine community. Appreciation to Jane Haven who wrote all those informative newsletters during your term as past President, for serving as past Youth Director for Region 2, recruitment of new board members, and your undying commitment to Arabian horses.

Our board voted last year to change our meeting itinerary to every other month as well as the newsletter issuance. This will save money for the club and energy for the people who run this club. We are in firm footing financially and want to stay that way so we can continue with all our equine community building programs, the fun shows, youth programs, trail rides and clinics.

It was also voted that we discontinue our Class A shows because they were becoming more financially risky with declining attendance due to the economy and the decline of Arabian Horse breeding. If you would like to be part of a volunteer committee to help run shows for our club, would like to be a non-paid show manager or can recruit one, we will be happy to revisit this decision. We welcome willing volunteers in any of our committees and hope that you will join us!

Please rsvp to me via email at t.terijef@gmail.com by February 1st, if you would like to attend our next board meeting. Meetings will be held the 2nd Tuesday of every even month (February, April, etc.) until further notice. Our meetings serve to forward our club business and also make lasting friendships.

Best wishes to you and your horse for 2015!

Teri Gonzalez Reichman

P.S. Hope to see you at our Winter Wonderland Fun Show as an attendee, exhibitor or volunteer on Sunday, January 11, 2015!!! This will also serve as a good ring warm up for attendees to the Sierra Empire Show January 23-25th. We might also connect in Scottsdale next month!
