Festival&HorseGames 2015 19Volunteers Brent Comer (Announcer) Robin Smith Comer (Judge), Jessi Wilbers, Anya Hensley-Newton, Jim King, Jolene Bennett, Steve Johnson, Dominique Cline, Izzy Davidson, Ali Davidson, Carla Davidson, Tami Anderson, Kristen Anderson, Jessie Miller, Briana Randall, RobertMilward, Holly Williamson and many others… I, Marie Tomacelli – would like to say/give (on the behalf or our event) a special thank you to ALL of our amazing volunteers. These folks were out in the cold, windy rain and really worked hard to make this event happen. They treated everyone with dignity, respect and kindness – no matter what the situation or stress level was. Our volunteers are such an important part of the event and I hope they know how grateful we are to have them. Please know that we thank each of you so very much, we could not have done this without your help, gracious attitude and your dedication.

UPDATE – Experience The Horse/Horse Games 2015; The Festival of the Horse has graciously agreed to donate another $50 towards Krystina Lawson Gilbert’s Cancer Fund – so that brings our total to $425!

I would like to personally give a huge shout out & Thank You to Tami Anderson, Kristen Anderson, Jessie Miller & Briana Randall. These ladies went above & beyond at the Horse Games. They brought supplies for games, loaded/unloaded/setup/,etc., helped chase a Horse that was loose, helped with children in the games and so much more.

In addition to all this – after winning Grand Prize, Jessie Miller donated it up for Auction. Thank you and extra hugs to Jessie. (Jim King purchased @ $80 & donated to Cancer Fund for Krystina).
