Merry Christmas Everyone - Hope Santa was good to each of you!
The October Trail Class results have been posted. See Open Horse Show page.
Working on final few checks for financial reconciliation of the Oct 30th make-up date show.  So if you left a blank check and it has not been through your bank account, I have 11 checks yet to deposit: L Burch CK#2038, M Duley CK#1968, L Hester CK#3004, L Newman CK#1058, D Riley CK#1321, A Robinson CK#1012, G Stine CK#1723, P Willey CK#5074, J Wilson/J Elliott CK#8517, King Edward Stable CK#1011 and Stillwater Farm CK#1208
Email me, Kim if you need the amount: gladwellke.3011@verizon.net

Since we had to cancel Oct 9th show and move to Oct 30th, that put me behind on 4-H paperwork. 
As many of you know, all 4-H Clubs now have to file with the IRS annually and that due date with IRS was 15 Nov.
Then there was the annual 4-H sponsored Tack Swap on 19 Nov at the Fairgrounds...
And on 15 Dec, all 12 monthly financial statements, annual club inventory of assets and an annual financial summary were due to the County 4-H Office to be sent forward to the MD State 4-H Office as supporting documentation for our tax filing.
Then the Christmas season was upon us!
Whew.

So working to get these last few checks from the Oct 30 show filled in and will deposit all the checks at once.  
The FINAL Horse Show points are being worked on too! Will post after our Jan 3 monthly 4-H Club meeting.

Finalizing our Annual Horse Show Awards Banquet date - will post that date along with the HS points!
Looking at either March 18 2017 or April 8 2017. Our normal, last Saturday in March (25th) has again been grabbed by
someone else. Will be at Accokeek VFD Banquet Hall same as last year. Looks like BEST show series kicks off that last weekend
in March so maybe best we had to move our Banquet date...

Thanks for all the support at our November 2016 Tack Swap - not as many tables/spaces sold as we had in 2015 - regret that
conflict with SMTR Trail Ride. We will try and coordinate better for next year - always good thing to not have 2 local
horse events on the same day! But was a good fund-raiser for our 4-H Horse Program and we met some new horse kids
to bring into the 4-H Program. YEAH!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
