The Horseman’s Association meets the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Equestrian Center. They strive to promote the interests of all riding disciplines. They also invite us all to participate in the protection, promotion and preservation of our 50 miles of horse and hiking trails.

A recent event that proved very enjoyable to children and parents alike was the performance of “‘Twas The Night,” sponsored by the BVS Cultural Arts Association. It took place Dec. 22 and 23 at the Whiting Center. The play was loosely based on the poem of the same name, and was directed by Andi Hicks and the production manager was Vivette Lund.

Happy New Year to you, friends, and wishing good health and happiness to all.
