Helping Hands Award

This award is given each year in honour of one of our very own special members

Linda Lambert was an untiring volunteer of Area 3 for many years. A carded WHAO judge, ring steward, board member and avid horse enthusiast, she was the active wheel that kept the club turning. In 1999, while ring stewarding a horse show, she was struck by lightning that took her life.

In her spirit of giving, the HELPING HANDS AWARD was established so we may recognize and thank those special people who do not ask for accolades or payback, Sundays off or overtime. They simply do what needs to be done, see the job through come rain or shine.
