Classic Horse Show. The following are some of the topics discussed at the meeting:
    (1) JEF raised $750 from concessions sold at the last horse show held at Cornerstone
    (2) An information packet was recently mailed to all members. A copy of the 2007 rules and
        regulations, scholarship information and a letter from President Kathy Hall were
        included in the mailing, along with a form requesting information for the next
        membership directory. Please complete and return the directory information form by
        June 15 to Trish Helmer.
    (3) It’s not too early to plan your barn basket or to donate silent auction items for the next
        OHJA banquet. An award will be given this year for the best barn basket!
    (4) Volunteers are needed to help with JEF fundraisers and OHJA events.
    Thank you to all members who attended the meeting. Please note that general meeting
attendance has been very low over the past several years. All members are strongly encouraged
to attend each meeting. This is your organization. Your presence and participation are very
important to OHJA’s success.

Classic 1 Horse Show. (June 7-10) Rule change proposals are being drafted and will be
submitted for vote at the meeting. Please check our website for a draft of the proposals and for
verification of the date and time of the meeting.
