Equestrian Center Report: Lynda Arnold
  Lynda Arnold reported she spoke with Les Phelps (Phelps Lawn Care) and he sprayed the weeds around the rings. The hay in the hayfield needs to be harvested; Lynda will make the contact. Peggy Miller reported that Bob Miller painted the storage container to cover the graffiti and painted the jump. The paint is peeling and the solution would be to repaint using spraying equipment. Peggy will obtain an estimate for this project.
