November Scrip Order

The November Scrip Order Form is here NovemberScripOrderForm You will note that several new products (merchants) have been added to give you more choices.
Save yourself the ordeal of fighting those frenzied Holiday shopping crowds to find just the right present when you can order a gift card from the comfort of your home and let the recipient select exactly what he or she really wants.
As we have stated many times before, Scrip cards are not just for gift giving.  They can be used for your everyday shopping needs as well and at the same time raise funds for PETS at no added cost to you. Remember, the more cards you order, the greater your tax deduction for donating your rebates from Great Lakes Scrip Center to PETS.
Thank you for your orders!

2014 Riding Season Begins

Welcome to the start of the 2014 PETS Riding Season

Our season begins this month as work days begin to make our area ready and returning riders submit their paperwork.

Here is our tentative 2014 calendar of events.

Our first workday is to be held on Saturday March, 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  PETS Instructors are also scheduled to have a meeting that day.

Returning riders must submit their completed paperwork by March 15. If your paperwork is not turned in by the due date, your position may be left open to a new rider.

Returning volunteers can bring their paperwork to the work days. For safety and liability, only volunteers with current paperwork can be allowed to participate and be on the property.

Horses are expected to return, depending on the progress of the work days, during the first week of April. Returning volunteer training, new volunteer training and rider screening also begins in April.
