In 2018 News by admin

at the 2018 Area 3 Year End Awards Luncheon!

A great afternoon was had by all of those in attendance. The awards were absolutely fantastic!

Thank you once again to Sarah Black & Jess Mosley-Cairncross for your hard work sourcing the amazing prizes, getting them ordered and hauling it all to the banquet. Your expert organization and tireless commitment did not go unnoticed…thank you to you both!

Special thanks to Mark Grice for his fast talking skills on the microphone as the MC for the afternoon. Always nice to have a familiar face and voice to present awards on this memorable occasion.

Our festive table center pieces were sponsored by Cheri Woodrow. She commissioned Kirsten Ego to design and make each one of these wonderful holiday themed arrangements.

Every table setting also included a gift of knitted Area 3 mittens. Be sure to post your pictures to social media with them on!

The Silent Auction table is always a hit with some unique offerings to choose from. Thank you to those individuals that donated an auction item – and to those that purchased. This is always a great fundraiser for Area 3 and we appreciate all of the support! We raised close to $1000 and the highlight was the custom made show vest donated by Cathy Lemieux.

Our West Jet Raffle was a huge hit and the draw was a highlight of the day. The proceeds from ticket sales totaled $2200 and we are so appreciative of the hard work that Ashley Randolph put into co-ordinating this fundraiser for Area 3! Greg McLinton won the draw and he is going to use his prize to travel to Vegas with a friend. He spends time in Houston for work and lives in Ottawa. He purchased the tickets to support a friend at work. Congratulations Greg!

The Linda Lambert Memorial Helping Hands Award was won by Gord Laidlaw. Gord is someone who is always around at the shows lending a hand wherever it’s needed with an enthusiastic smile and tireless energy. Thank you so much Gord for all you do!

The Youth Achievement Award which highlights a youth who has shown sportsmanship, horsemanship and participation was won by Amber Zabel. Amber has a great passion for the Quarter Horse and we look forward to seeing her continue to shine and promote our great sport!

Thank you as well to Area 3 member and Ontario Quarter Horse Queen, Tiana Domingos for being on hand in her glamorous attire to present awards to our recipients – you have been a wonderful representative and we are so proud of you!

The Area 3 Facebook Page has many pictures of award winners – be sure to check them out.

Thank you to all of our members, board of directors and exhibitors for your support and dedication to the Area 3 Promotional Club in 2018! We look forward to creating new memories and new adventures next year!
