Did we overlook Quarter Horse Congress? Neigh! [Lisbon]

Horse lovers, there is also something for you in this edition. It is the world-known Ohio Quarter Horse Congress, the largest single breed horseshow in the world. I just returned from four days in Ohio, where I either saw many of you there or heard you were there or will be there before it ends.

The Quarter Horse Congress lasts from Oct. 1 through 25 with the trade show opening on Oct. 5 until Oct. 25. Maryland was well represented at this prestigious event, with Howard County and surrounding areas sharing a large part of the spotlight.

Some of the entries making us proud are Jennifer Lacey Kladney and Alyssa Kladney of Westminster, Linda and Kelsey Mcarthur of Ellicott City, Mary Lentz of Walkersville, Rhonda Replogle of Clear Springs, Deborah Thomas of Woodbine, Kim Fullwood of Ellicott City, Dan Maletic and daughter Erica of Annapolis are all entered, while there to support were parents, families and friends including Jennifer Walk Lowery and husband, Curtis and Eileen Danahy Simpson of Woodbine, Ashley Shaeffer of New Windsor, Heidi Kern of Pasadena, and Rachel Flohr of Sykesville.

Since the Congress is still in session, class results are not available, but you can rest assured that anyone who showed a horse in Ohio is a top competitor who deserve our kudos.

Staff at Lisbon Elementary School reports being very proud of their students' participation in the multi-school concert held at Glenelg High School on Oct 17 and the students are looking forward to their Halloween Parade on the morning of Oct. 30 at the school.

Other exciting community events this fall include:

The sixth annual Ellie's Bake Sale at 15211 Frederick Road on Nov. 7 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Of special interest is the sponsor of this event, a vey special teen in our community, Ellie Feaga, who has raised with the support of donations from the community over the years $23,114, all of which has been donated to a variety of charities including the Susan G. Koman Cancer Fund, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Department, and this year, the Glenelg United Methodist Church food pantry.

Ellie's involvement in agriculture and her love for the dairy industry spurs her interest in helping provide adequate milk and dairy products for everyone who needs it. Her donation this year will help the church purchase a refrigerator to store these products safely until they are used. She hopes for many and varied baked good donations from the community.
