REMINDER! VADA CHAPTER BASKETS AT THE AWARDS BANQUET
The VADA will be giving the proceeds of the chapter basket auction held at the annual state awards luncheon to a non-
profit organization. Lea Ann Hansen is taking nominations of worthy organizations until July 15. Please send the group's
name, mission, and contact information to leaann.hansen@gmail.com. Thank you!

UPDATE! VADACC’s 2011 CHARITY (TRF) HAS NEW CONTACTS
TB Retirement Foundation Report: Our contact for the TB Retirement Foundation is now Anne Tucker and the VADACC
liasion is Hollyn Mangione mangioneht@vcu.edu

VADACC NEEDS YOU!
It was decided that a silent auction would be a great fundraising idea at our VADACC 2012 year end awards banquet.
Donated items would be collected from members throughout the year; however, an organizer will be needed for this. If
anyone is interested should contact Lani Tigchelaar (TigchelaarDressage@msn.com) or Alison Douglas
(adouglas@fasmart.come).




                                                                                                                           4
I hope everyone is staying cool and still able to get some riding in during this terrible
heat. We are in a bit of a break with activities, so now is a perfect time to check your
hours and report any that may be missing. I only have hours for 1 person reported
from the June schooling show. I know that there were a number of Central folks
working the show. Please contact me with your hours. I would also encourage board
members and committee members to let me know how many hours you are doing.

Stay Cool!

Britt
