Thank you to our partner Stargazey’s Equine Therapy! The good folks at Stargazey recently received a $2,400 grant from the Robert E. and Genevieve B. Schaefer fund to allow for 8 free pony activities from them in 2015. Students and adults will benefit from this grant at several events the Pioneer Center has planned this upcoming year to be held at the Pioneer School and at the Black Farm. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
