Red Carpet Show of the South hosts REACH class



On any given day a child’s life within our community can be impacted by disaster, illness, poverty, or tragedy. These unwelcomed life events can forever change childhood.  We have all said it before, “If we could see the world through the eyes of a child?”  If we could, what would we really see?  Would we see things like hate, sorrow, and war?  Or would we see clearly without distortion pure joy, peace and simplicity in the beauty of our world?  Do you remember what you saw as a child?

There is no greater gift than the blessing and miracle children bestow upon a community. Children are the element which holds the future of a community.  What could be a better contribution than to REACH a child whose vision might be fogged because of an unforeseen life changing event?  

A child deserves to be a child.  A child is only little for little while, and they need the opportunity to experience every adventure.  The Rotary Club of Pulaski in conjunction with the Red Carpet Horseshow of the South are committed to Reaching Every Adventure Children Have.  The Rotary Club is anticipating the ability through the REACH initiative to partner with local schools, churches and other community members to seek those children who need an adventure.  “Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures…”- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

The 77th Annual Red Carpet Horse Show of the South, Saturday July 22, 2017- Giles County Ag Park Highway 31 South, will host the very first Rotary Ribbon REACH Class.  This exciting pleasure class will be open an encouraged for local horse riders, amateurs, and professionals to compete and support REACH.  Riders will be paired together and challenged to “Let em’ Walk On” with a ribbon of toilet paper!  The mighty horse duo that keeps the ribbon of toilet paper together wins!
