Show packets are finished and online for the 2nd Annual RFP MH Show on November 26, 2005 (yes, this is the Saturday after Thanksgiving). They can be found here (http://www.geocities.com/rjcody1/berkscounty.html). If you've attended our show in the past you will be on our mailing list and should be also getting a show packet via snail mail in the next couple of weeks.

The show is located just outside of Reading PA and this year's show is all halter in the Open division. There are 131 classes in 6 different divisions (with plenty of extra cards ordered so that we can split classes as needed), so there is something for almost everyone. Our Novice division will still have both Performance and Halter.

Last year's show raised almost $2,000 for our club's treasury which we have used for a variety of things. We sponsored a family at Christmas, buying them the makings of their Christmas dinner and gifts for the kids. We've also given scholarships to our members to help defray the cost of things like 4-H Camp, State Days, and various other educational opportunities that can sometimes be rather costly. And just last month we bought brushes, buckets, and other horse supplies and donated them to Ryerss Farm for Aged Equines (http://www.ryerss.com/) and spent a day brushing the horses and feeding them homemade horse cookies. We're even going to be sponsoring a class at NAN this year to give back to the hobby itself.

And this is just a small sampling of what the club does. We have an activity nearly every week (sometimes more than one), some are fun things for the kids and others are community service. The club is highly active and our membership is growing by leaps and bounds as other kids in the area discover what fun we have!
