Membership Meeting Overview 2019

Thank You to everyone who came out to the meeting and supported us with donations!

Thank you everyone for coming out and making it a wonderful meeting last week! I know some reached out who couldn't make it due to extenuating circumstances so here is a general idea of how it went.

A big thank you to M bar D Anchorage for donating some beautiful leather halters and gift cards! As well as a big thank you to Flying Dutchman Pastry shop for cookies and chocolates!

Thank you to 12100 Coffee house for providing the space!

Nancy and Zoe generally went over 2018 expense and profit, which will be provided below. ( You can find larger profit and loss graphs and financials on our website at www.anchoragehorsecouncil.net/financials )

As always Administrative expenses are at the top of the expense list, however without these employees there would be no one to open the gates or drag the areas. Our second biggest expense is manure removal and porta-potties.

As for income facility rental and stall rental are our biggest income. Membership used to be our biggest form of income but it has been down significantly in the past few years. We ask that everyone please, if you use the facility to either purchase a membership or a day use pass. 

Sorry for the delay in getting our meeting notes out! I was trying to get some announcements wrapped up so I can announce them in this email!

We now have an Anchorage equestrian 4-H program! Zoe Seppi is the 4-H leader and it will be happening out of the equestrian center. Keep yours eyes peeled for more announcements to come, we are in the very early stages of planning. We hope to have our first meeting around April.

Emergency preparedness meeting Feb 23rd 2019 10am

Where: 12100 Coffee Shop, in the shop (if enough people come we will rent a conference room)

I had planned this meeting before the big earthquake, with the intention of having city officials and other join us to talk about preparedness. Then the Nov 30th earthquake happened and everyone became a bit busy. So we will still have this meeting, but plan to talk about what your experiences were in the big quake along with how we are each prepared for disasters to help each other prepare.

Disasters that can happen in Alaska

In many parts of the country hurricane season is starting. In Alaska, during the warmer months we don’t think about needing to be prepared for nature’s wrath. But due to the location of this beautiful place we call home, nature can catch us unprepared at any time.

Take a minute to think about the disasters that can happen in Alaska. What did you come up with?

Some natural disaster we can have in Alaska:

Earthquake

Wild fire

High winds

Snow storm

Ice storm

Volcanic fallout

Heavy Rain/ High water/ Flooding

Avalanche

Rock slides/ Mud slides

 

Many if not all of these are not seasonal, they can happen any time of year in Alaska.

Are you prepared?

Did you know?

Are you Prepared? 

Did you know the William Chamberlin Equestrian Center is Anchorages first evacuation point for all horses and livestock in an emergency?

This means we want you to be the prepared as you can be. Plan…Prepare…React! If you have planned and prepared, then you are ready to react when the time comes. 

 

We will have regular posts about what you can do to be prepared, what the center is doing to be prepared, and what will happen when a natural disaster happens. Check out our website page for more information at https://www.anchoragehorsecouncil.net/emergency-evacuation-site/
