River of Hope Ranch

“Great that your club has chosen to support this effort in whatever way possible.”
-Pam Sudlow

National President 2003-2004

Our club has a long tradition of supporting new and innovative ways to reach out to youth in need. We have found healers of hurting youth named Dirty Barry, Merlin, Romeo and Miss Muffet! They are horses!

On April 2, 2009, we presented a $150 scholarship to River of Hope Ranch in support of KIND: KIND Picture at right: Club President Jim Suddath presenting a scholarship check to Marne Baltes, Executive Director, River of Hope Ranch.

River of Hope Ranch offers mental health counseling to youth and families using a unique tool-HORSES. On a 31 acre ranch, a loving horse can help a child in pain find hope and healing.
