Aug. 2016

What a hot summer we have had here in Ohio. I don't know about everyone else but I have been doing a rain dance daily, but it doesn't seem to be working. Although the water company I am sure loves getting the payment from my water bill. I know my gang of hooves aren't happy with all this dry weather because they haven't been out to pasture as much as they would like. I keep trying to explain to them that I am trying to make sure they have good grass for later, but they just look at me as if to say "but I want it now".

The ballots to vote for Pres., Treasurer, and Clydesdale Trustee have been mailed so you should be receiving those soon. Please return mail them by Sept. 15th. Daryl Jones' address is at the bottom of the ballots.

Our fall outing will be at the home of Dave and Diana Long on Oct. 2nd @ noon. One of the attachments I have sent you has the map to place. Please bring a covered dish to share and your own beverages. I will send out a reminder to everyone when we get closer to that date.

I know there are still a few fairs to go yet, but we need applications submitted for the 2017 Youth Representative. The fall outing will be a good place to review those applications and make a decision. We had two representatives for this summer and as soon as i have a closing report from them I will forward that on to everyone. I think it was a good idea having two representatives that were from northern and southern Ohio to cover more fairs. Keeping two representatives will be a decision that is made each year.
