Cocoa with the Clauses

Register by calling 817-738-9241

Friday, December 15 – 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Cost $3 per person in advance / $5 at the door

 

Some of best things about Christmas are cookies, cocoa and the Clauses. Join Mrs. Claus and some of Santa’s elves for an evening for fun, food and reading. Maybe if the group is being good, Santa himself will make an appearance to pass out some gifts.

 

Our evening of fun will begin at 6:30 PM with Mrs. Claus reading stories to the children while the elves play fun Christmas themed games. We will then settle in and decorate our own special sugar cookies while the elves serve everyone a wonderful mug of hot cocoa. Finally if we sing really loud, Santa might just ride up to spend some time with the kids and give out gifts before they head home.

For the Love of Horses

We don’t need to tell you how special horses are. You already know that. You already demonstrate a love of horses by the amount of time to spend grooming, riding and, of course, learning about and from horses.

We all remember that one thing that got us sold on the power and beauty of horses. Maybe it was a pony ride, maybe it was seeing a horse in a pasture along the roadside, maybe it was visiting a farm, or maybe it was your first riding lesson. No matter what it was that triggered your love, it was an important event for you.

Each year the YMCA Camp Carter Equestrian Center provides the first experience for lots of children and adults. It could be an introductory program for kids from an Eastside pre-school, a pony ride at a community celebration, a riding lesson for a child on the autism spectrum or a troop of Girl Scouts visiting the barn to earn a badge. Everyone deserves to have a positive first experience with a horse.

Every year, YMCA Camp Carter provides subsidies and scholarships to make sure that these equine interactions can happen. Please consider a pledge to our 2017 Annual Campaign to make sure that we can continue to provide that access. Every dollar raised goes directly to providing program access to those that cannot afford it or that need it the most and is fully tax-deductible. Please click or call 817-738-9241 for more information or to make a pledge.

  • A donation of $50 per month will help provide a week of summer Horse Camp for the children of a deployed solider
  • A donation of $25 per month will fund a pre-school classroom to come to the barn for program that exposes them to horses and riding
  • A donation of $12.50 per month will provide four riding lessons for a foster care child who was removed from an abusive home
  • A donation of $5 per month will provide a month of Parent/Child lessons for a child with a speech delay or autism

We hope this request is possible and that the next generation of equestrians will also have that first great memory and a lifelong love of horses.
