Alabama Association Holds Annual Banquet



by Sarah Smith


DODGE CITY, Ala. – The Alabama Show Horse Association held their annual awards banquet at the Dodge House Restaurant in Dodge City, Ala., which is located just south of Cullman, Ala. The restaurant provided the Alabama Show Horse Association guests with a southern style buffet. The Association officers did a wonderful job putting on the event and all in attendance enjoyed the hospitality.

Shortly after 6 p.m., Nan Ingle welcomed all the guests to the event and announced that there would be a short meeting of the association before dinner. Roxy Reeves read the minutes from the last meeting and they were approved by members of the association. Glenda Barrow, treasurer, was next to step to the microphone. Barrow announced that the Alabama Show Horse Association has an account balance of $10,261.75. The association made a $6,686.43 profit on their horse show and 75 percent of that profit will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Nan Ingle took over again and announced that it is no longer necessary for members of the association to nominate their horses for the high point awards. The membership voted and the motion was passed. Next, Ingle announced that there is a nominating committee that will compile a slate of officers for 2008. The meeting was then adjourned.

After dinner, the highpoint awards got under way. The Alabama Show Horse Association awarded prizes in three divisions. They were the spotted show horse division, the racking horse division and the Tennessee Walking Horse division.
