Welcome all new KQ and KQHYA members! I am extremely happy to have been elected the KQHYA president for 2014 and this exciting show season! I plan to involve all of our youth members this year with lots of activities as well as fundraisers. The biggest show of this year is definitely the Keystone Showdown, where we will get everyone involved and have a great time! It is an honor for the youth to help and to participate in a show that has become a favorite for so many people. At our youth meeting in February, we decided to continue the tradition of having a basket auction, 50/50 sales and many other events. Our biggest fundraiser of the year will be selling Gertrude Hawk candy bars, and all youth members will sell two boxes. The candy bars are $2 each. If anyone would like to sell or purchase these wonderful treats, please contact me! I would also like to congratulate my fellow officers and welcome all of our new members! KQHYA is an exciting place to be as we grow and continue to have great success every year. KQHYA offers the opportunity to qualify for a NYATT Congress Team each year and offers opportunities for volunteering and for developing leadership skills. We are fortunate enough to have had lots of support from our parent organization, KQHA. Best wishes for a fantastic show season and lots of personal success to everyone. Let’s keep the Keystone Quarter Horse Youth Association a great one!!!
