The second long side still needs fencing and we still need our new wheel chair accessible mounting ramp and a gate for the placement of this ramp.

Thank you to all our donors.  We want to extend a special thank you to the Fort Leonard Wood Thrift Shop and the Fort Wood Community Spouses Club.

We would also like to thank our volunteer building crews, 2 separate Engineer ANCOC classes.

Upcoming Volunteer opportunities

From our Volunteer Coordinator

Hello Volunteers!

We have 2 opportunities coming up in September:

  1. We will be having a 4-week class after school for the YMCA After-School Program on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 4:30. Classes will be September 8, 15, 22, 29.  If you are available to be horse handler or side walker for one or more of these dates, please let me know!
  2. Saturday, September 12 will be a clean-up day and wiener roast at the stables. Family and friends are welcome! We will be pulling grass in the arena, picking up rocks, etc. Please come by anytime from 9:00 am on. Hot dogs will be served beginning at noon. This counts toward community service for those in high school.

Please call me if you have any questions!

From Our President

Phase 1 of our new security fence was started June 14 and the volunteer work was provided by an ANOC class from Fort Leonard Wood.







Thank you to all those that volunteered!!

We have been in need of help to finish phase 1 and it is coming to us on Septemeber 12, during our clean up day, from a second ANCOC group from Fort Leonard Wood.  If there are any other groups looking to fulfill volunteer community service hours we have two more phases to this project that still need to be built and always welcome helpers to harvest our many rocks and pick up fallen limbs.

If you can come out to help please plan to join us!!

Phase one of our Fence project

Phase one of our fence project is well under way.

Thanks to the generous donations of the FWCSC and the Fort Wood thrift shop we were able to purchase the materials for phase one.  Our volunteer builders are from the current ANOC course on Ft. Wood.  Sunday June 14, they dug the holes and set the posts and put up a good portion of this first phase.  Thank you again to all those who have made donations and to all our volunteer work force for a job well done!
