June Newsletter

Hello members and visitors,

I just wanted to inform you of some things that are going on in our club.

We were contacted by the Putnam County Fair Board to assist them with the annual Walking Horse Show this year. The board members have decided to copartner with them for the event. We all have a common goal and that goal is to promote the breed of the Tennessee Walking Horse.

The show will be on July 18, 2015. We are currently working on the class sheet for the show and it will be posted on the website soon.

The club will also have a silent auction at the show. We need everyone’s help in order to make this a successful event. We are asking anyone who can collect or donate items for the auction to contact one of our board members. Our contact information is listed on the website. If you prefer to bring the item the night of the show we will gladly accept it then. If you are able to help out with the show or auction we would gladly accept your help. It takes a lot of manpower to put on a successful show. The money made from the auction goes toward scholarships for our youth members, our annual awards banquet and other activities for our members.

This year we had one scholarship submission. A copy of the scholarship form is posted on our website a couple of months prior to the deadline.

Cassie Slagle is the recipient of this year’s scholarship. Cassie is a well-deserved recipient. Cassie placed in the top 10% of her 2015 graduating class of 580 students and with honors. Cassie will enter Tennessee Tech this fall as a sophomore. She has been around walking horses all her life. She has shown walking horses since she was 8 years old. Cassie has been a member of our club since 2007 and actively involved in our club, always willing to help out. She has received numerous awards from our club as well as the E.T.W.H.A, WHOA and the Walking Horse Report. Congratulations to Cassie for her achievements. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.

If you haven’t joined our club or paid your membership dues we encourage you to do so. If you join you will qualify for the high point awards program from that   date forward. Dues are $15.00 for individual or $20.00 for family membership with children included up to the age of 18.

Also mark your calendars for October 3, 2015 for our clubs annual show. It will be held at the White County Fairgrounds. Look for more information coming soon.

We hope you all will be able to attend both shows.

See you then!

Lesa Davidson
