What can YOU do?
Anyclub/organization/group has needs.
The main need is for the membership toget involved!
Do you have to be a member to get involved? Absolutely not!
There are many ways that our friends and supporters can help.
Many people are willingto do,what they can do,when they can,
if they only knew what to do!
The purpose of this page is to try to keep the membership informed as to the many ways they can help. Most of the maintenance is done by volunteers.
Some things are only occasional. Others are ongoing.
If everyone helps, then it is less stress and strain on those leading the organization throughout the year.
After any function in the Clubhouse, there is always the usual straightening of chairs, sweeping of floors, taking out of trash, checking of restrooms. If everyone pitches in, then within a matter of minutes, everything is done and everyone can leave for home at about the same time. ( It is also greatly appreciated!)
Throughout the year there are various functions that require certain tasks. Listed below are some of those functions and the tasks required for their success.
General Maintenance: Mowing, weeding, pick up trash and limbs, maintain trails, check restrooms, sweeping clubhouse.
Fun Horse Shows:
Money takers at the gate.
Two people to set up/tear down the entry booth.
Two- three people to work the entry booth.
Two to three arena workers.
(If we are short of volunteers, many of these jobs are performed by the same
people, and they get VERY TIRED!)
Ideas for the trails, and people to build and man them.
Money takers at the door.
Haywagons and ATV's to pull them and Drivers.
Guides to assist guests to mount/dismount the wagons.
People to decorate the clubhouse.
People to pass advertising info in area parades.
Sign painters for advertising.
Snack items donated for sell at the kitchen.
Generaters, cords for operating the Trail attractions.
Gate money taker.
2-4 Cooks for the kitchen.
Housekeeping after the event.
Clerks at the sign up table.
Clerk with the auctioneers.
Helpers to unload the vendor van before and to reload whatever is left.
These are just a few of the tasks. At any time you are at the Circle X and you see something that needs done, but you have questions about doing it, feel free to call one of the board members for confirmation. Thanks!
Many members, and non members donate to a specific cause. If you see a particular need of the Circle X and you can donate materials to the completion of that need, just let one of the officers know!
At the January meeting, we were discussing the improvements needed in the Clubhouse kitchen before the summer season begins. The President read through a list of materials and their costs at a second hand contractors store. A new-that-night-member and his wife to be spoke up and volunteered most of those items! He is a contractor and has those items on hand! We thank them so verrrrrrryyyyyyyyyy much!
We realize that not everyone can do that, but if everyone would do what they can, then......amazing things are accomplished!
