Let’s welcome Shirley Righi as the Chapter’s new President!
Shirley is an avid horse enthusiast who has participated in a variety of
disciplines; however, her greatest love is trail riding. Her interest in BCHA began in New Mexico while riding with a friend who packs and clears trails with the New Mexico Gila Chapter. After Shirley’s recent retirement from Nursing where she was VP Chief Nursing Officer, she turned her focus and energy towards helping the equine community. Fortunately for EVBCH, Shirley has combined her love of horses with the skills she learned through her professional career, first as Membership Committee Chairperson, and then Alternate Board Member, and now as Fundraising and Special Events Chairperson and Vice President.
April 2021 ~ Read the article in the BCHA newsletter to find out how EVBCH adapted, overcame, and had a very productive 2020-21 season, in spite of all the challenges presented by COVID. The article was written by Tess, Stransky.
Oct 18, 2021 ~ The Board is pleased to announce that Chip received
a letter from the IRS and our application for a 501(c)3
has been approved. Our thanks to Chip, Shirley
and Steve for moving this along and being involved in the lengthy and complicated approval process. We also want to thank Jeannie Kennedy, CPA, for all her help and expertise. Here's to a job well done!!
