The Canadian Pony Club would like to take this opportunity during Volunteer Recognition Week to acknowledge and thank the thousands of volunteers who make this organization and its programming possible. We are immensely grateful for the commitment and sacrifice demonstrated by these people and for their dedication to the vision of knowledgeable, committed and competent young horse lovers forming the foundation of a strong, diverse and sustainable equestrian community in Canada. Grassroots leadership is a gritty, challenging, rewarding and life changing. As you serve our members, you are shaping the future and assuring the hope that they represent for the future of equestrianism in Canada.
You are worth more than we have the means to give you, and we take great pride and comfort in the fact that you continue to do this not because of any financial gain, but for a higher purpose. You do this for the sake of the youth whom you serve and the culture you ultimately influence. "The riches of the Canadian Pony Club lie not in our pockets or bank accounts, but in the quality of the people who willingly choose to sacrifice their comfort, time and knowledge for a common greater good".
To our members I remind you that "Thank You" are two of the most powerful words in our language, and I hope you will take every chance to say them to those who lead, organize, instruct, drive, fund raise, cook for and otherwise "work" on your behalf so that you might grow in your skills and character through this organization.
Thank you all more than words alone can convey.
