  • December 13th - 6:30PM to 9:30PM Chapter Meeting and Christmas Party at Susan Wards house.
Season's Greetings Everyone!

We hope everyone had a Wonderful Thanksgiving! Despite having to work, we had a very nice holiday with our families, including our many critters. At our house, the animals get special treats on the holidays too in appreciation for the parts they play in our lives as family members. We make a special effort to be sure the kitties get some tuna, the dogs get extra bones and leftovers to share, and the horses get apples and carrots as treats. We are truly thankful for all that we have.

Christmas is not too far away and the first thing on our minds as we write this months newsletter. We have enclosed an invitation to this years Christmas Party! We would love to see everyone there!

Oh Come all Ye Faithful… To the SNC Annual Christmas Party!!!!

This will be a potluck style party. Please bring an appetizer or dessert dish. Coffee, soda and water will be provided. Members, families and friends are welcome. We are asking folks to RSVP so we know how many to plan for. Please send an email to and let us know how many will be in your party!

Admission requirement will be one brown bag gift. The idea is simple and fun. Please bring a gift item, size and cost are not important, in a brown bag. Ideas for gifts can be anything from horsey stuff, ornaments, calendars, picture frames, gift certificates, tack, stable supplies to people items. Use your imagination! Brown bags will be auctioned off during the party, with proceeds going to the club. We would love to see you there!!!
