Kiwanians bringing hope through service at Equine Therapy Center

Team work makes the dream work at New Hope Equine Therapy Center.

On Saturday, October 27 fourteen Kiwanians from Robson volunteered to work at New Hope Equine Therapy Center in Argyle, a facility providing horse riding therapy to mentally and physically challenged kids. The “ranch hands” were Barry and Maureen Pocock, Gary Koenig, Jerry Waynant, Marty Visser, Milt Glenn, Jan Norton and friend, Ron and Maureen Lehrer, Jesse and Christine Lovelace, Chris Hagan and Bill Wright.

The Kiwanians cleared brush and spread mulch on the riding trails, packed hay into feeding bags, repaired a gate and brushed protective sealer onto the wooden deck and bench and the wooden horse mounting stand and ramp which the Robson Kiwanis Club built three years ago.

This service project was the Robson Kiwanis Club’s participation in the “One Day” observance by all Kiwanis Clubs around the world. One Day is an annual event occurring on a designated date on which all Kiwanis Clubs provide a day of service, proving each person really can make a difference.

If you are interested in serving your community in a variety of ways with a focus on children, come join the Kiwanis Club every first and third Friday at 8:30 a.m. in the Clubhouse. For information contact or
