Dear Friends of Serenity Farm Equestrian Center
We are working to keep everyone abreast to all changes occurring as a result of COVID 19. In order to protect the health and safety of our riders, volunteers, staff, and families we have made several changes to our 2020 schedule. Changes are listed below and include programs, fundraisers, and volunteer activities.
BENEFIT FOR THE BARN MOVED ONLINE!
Our annual fundraiser, Benefit for the Barn, has been moved online this year. We are excited about this change and have developed a two-part auction. Thank you for a very successful Part 1 auction in June!
Part 2 becomes available October 1 and ends October 10th. To view auction items and place bids, visit www.biddingow.com/SerenityFarmEquestrianCen. All proceeds will support equine assisted therapy opportunities at Serenity Farm.
Like many other non-profits, we have struggled with the changes brought on by COVID 19. The cancellation of programs and restructuring of fundraisers has affected our budget in major ways. If you are unable to participate in our auction, please help support us by spreading the word! We would like to thank our 2020 venue, Highland Meadows, for their flexibility and our 2020 donors for their generosity.
Tuesday Therapeutic Riding: Classes are scheduled to resume in July. We have made the difficult decision to start with our most independent riders. This decision was made to best protect our riders and volunteers. Your instructor will be reaching out regarding reopening procedures..
Thursday Occupational Therapy: Due to circumstances outside of our control, we will not be able to offer Occupational Therapy in 2020. An instructor will contact you with program options.
Saturday Therapeutic Riding: All classes have been cancelled until August 2020.
All traditional Team Thunder visits have been cancelled until further notice. If your facility is interested in outdoor visits, please contact our office at (419) 833-1308.
Serenity Farm is welcoming new volunteers! If you are able to give your time this summer or fall, please reach out to our office (419) 833-1308 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a current volunteer, you will be contacted with available trainings and/or volunteer opportunities.
Thank you for your dedication to Serenity Farm and our families.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
We continue to work towards Phase 1 of our reopening plan and have scheduled programs in July. At this time we are unable to complete intakes with new clients. If you would like to get on our waiting list for 2021, please contact the office. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions and concerns! Thank you for your patience and support during this uncertain time! We look forward to seeing you all soon.
