Dear Friends of Sweet Adeline, I would like to take the opportunity to honor a very special person.
BARBARA ELLEN RIES
has been a timeless Sweet Adeline advocate for the past 4 years. Barbara was in the barn on November 10, 2002 when the tornado destroyed Serendipity Stables. Sweet Adeline saved her life, and Barbara,
in return, has given 100%
effort to promote her best friend-- Sweet Adeline! Within
the past week several of Barbara's promotions have come to pass. Most important is that the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association has named Sweet Adeline “Outstanding Horse Hero and Outstanding Animal.”
The list of activities which Barbara has set into motion
in honor of Sweet Adeline is endless. We are so
thankful for Barbara's devotion to Outstanding Sweet Adeline. Serendipity Stables will be honoring Barbara on Saturday, August 12, following Sweet Adeline’s award ceremony for outstanding advocate.
Thank you and Congratulations,
Barbara Ellen Ries .Sincerely,
Davis. August.Stable Newsletter. 2006
