Dearest NWESC Friends, Volunteers, and Donors, Over the last 10 years, this little organization has done amazing things for an uncountable number of horses and people in our community – all because of you. We thank you with all our hearts for allowing us to have served as we have. Because of this, it is with heavy hearts that we notify you that we are closing our doors this year. This decision was a tremendously hard one to make, but the Board of Directors determined that it was in the best interest of NWESC to do so. So, while we wind this amazing effort down, we would like to take a moment with you to celebrate all that is and has been Northwest Equine Stewardship Center … the hard work, sweat, tears, and dedication of hundreds of extraordinary volunteers; giving life back to just as many equines who had suffered beyond comprehension; the joyous gatherings and festivities to commemorate the wonderful horses and people who have crossed our path; the mentoring/training programs that have single handedly protected thousands of equines from disease, pain, and affliction now and in the future … this is, and will always be NWESC. And we thank you for it. And although the details are still being worked out, we assure you of our ongoing commitment and mission to make sure that NWESC assets will continue to serve the equines and their beloved ones in our region. Thinking of each of you. Thanking you all. Northwest Equine Stewardship Center Board of Directors
