I would like to thank the Board of Directors and other committee leaders for the time and effort that they gave to the meeting on July 18, 2015. Most of our members have no idea the cost and time involved with the business of running the Association, your efforts are appreciated. We all act as volunteers and we are not paid and yet we spend hours and days promoting the mule, donkey and association. We often make mistakes, but more than that we affect results. Thank you for your support of our work for our longear friends.
