Join the PETS Family at Cheverly Day this Saturday May 20th

PETS is looking for Volunteers and Riders to help man the PETS Information Table at Cheverly Day Festivities on Saturday, May 20. We could use your help for 3 hours from 1PM (set-up) to 4PM closing time.  There will be a fun activity of “Draw a Horse”  when blindfolded plus pictures and brochures about the PETS Program.  By this activity. we help to make PETS known in the community and hopefully attract volunteers and riders.  One or two persons would make a nice team to represent PETS.  Wear your PETS shirt!  Cheverly Day will have music venues during the afternoon and a few food trucks at the park.    Please contact Clareen Heikal at ms.clare@verizon.net to get directions to the Cheverly Town Center. Clareen’s phone number is (301) 351-1281.

 
Thanks,

Spring Script Card Order

Please help out PETS by viewing the April Scrip Order Form to see if you can meet any of your needs by ordering Scrip Cards. It costs you nothing extra to use the cards.  You get the full value of the cards and PETS gets a small rebate % on each card. The Script Card orders are due to Clareen by no later then April 28th.

Remember, it doesn’t cost you anything extra (above the cost of the cards) to support our very worthwhile riding Program.  The rebates (see the listed %’s on the order form) count as a tax deduction come April.  So the more you order, the bigger the deduction!

Thank you for your order!

Thank you
