Apple Blossom News:
We have an event! Saturday May 1st, from 10 AM until 3 PM at the Apple Blossom Mall in Winchester, VA. This will not be in our usual format. This is a static display only along with
the rodeo and modern apparatus display. Please see the flyer for more details onhow to register and information on the event.
This event is subject to change or cancellation beyond our control!
For those of you who sponsored the dash plaques or trophies for 2020, we will not be using that money for the modified 2021 event. It will now be forwarded to our 2022 event unless you’d like a refund. If so please let me know and will get that out to you. Thanks for your understanding in this.
Do you enjoy attending the Apple Blossom event the ODHFS Northern Region does? Do you know this is the premier event for the ODHFS at this time? Do you enjoy seeing all your old friends and telling tales? Do you wish it to continue? We need your HELP! Some of our committee members are aging out and who knows if they’ll be able to help with the 2021 or even the 2022 event. This is your Region and Event! Without your help this event will come to an END!
We are looking for Northern Region members who would like to become part of the ODHFS Northern Region Apple Blossom Committee to help plan and work the event.
We need to start having people in the wings to learn the various tasks to put on Apple Blossom in case something happens to anyone on the Committee. Computer skills are a plus. If you wish to learn more please contact me.
The Northern Region Treasurers 2020 report is available to ODHFS Northern Region members on request.
