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, M. Davis. August.Stable Newsletter. 2006
