GIVE THANKS WHERE NEEDED

I want to remind everyone to look at the good that everyone does for our Association.  With the spring season coming near let's have a great season.   We tend to all focus on negativity and forget about looking at the big picture.  With all the world events and our economy maybe let's give thanks to all we have and praise the volunteers that step up to help your kids rodeo in such a great association.  Thanks to all who bring in sponsors and to all our sponsors.
