The first meeting of the year was celebrated at Liz
and Bill Still’s home. Members were pleased to see
and greet each other and there was much interest in
the forthcoming activities. Some of these
• January 19: Little Manatee River State Park will
have a fundraiser: Poker Ride.
• Wildcat Habitat will have a benefit fundraiser
throughout the months of January and February.
Cirque Ma’ceo will be featured at the Habitat which
is located at 7101 Palmer Blvd., Sarasota. For more
information go to website: Wild Cat Habitat Sarasota
or to www.cirquemaceo.com
• Equine Fun Day sponsored by the Myakka River
Trail Riders will feature games and contests specially
designed for the whole family. This event will be
held on Saturday, Feb 9 from 10AM to 2PM at the
Manatee Posse Arena, 2409 Lena Road in Bradenton.
• Equine Carnival on February 17, 9AM at the PG
Arena in Fort Myers.
There was much discussion regarding the monthly
meetings. We are having difficulties in filling the
year with persons to host the meetings. One
suggestion was to hold the meeting at a nearby
meeting place or restaurant instead of people’s
homes. Another was to eliminate months on which
the attendance is poor and not much is going on. As
it stands, there is no host for February, September
and October. Jackie Vizzi agreed to send an e-mail to
members requesting volunteers. It was also agreed
at the meeting, to drop those months in which it is
difficult to meet. So, January, July, August and
December were stricken from the calendar.
Since we don’t have a host home for February, our
next meeting will be on Wednesday, March 6, at Don
Maitz and Janny Wurts home, 6630 Country Road, Lot
# 266 at 7PM. For more information, check out the
