SAKAKI: Thanks from Wayward Ponies' Home

March 19, 2013 

One week of catching up at the day job and two weeks of flu later, Wayward Ponies' Home may now thank those who helped out with our annual Open House event. Awesome prizes came from Anita Starchman Bryant, Conlin Supply, Glenda's Cowgirl Candy, Grace Note Chimes, Joyce Granger/Creative Memories, Just Dutch It!, Krogh Ranch, Lynn Malloy/Avon, Mariposa Feed, Mariposa Fruit & Nut Co., Merced Stadium Cinemas, Mosaics by Myatt, Mud Daubers, Silver Bell Barn, Stanislaus Farm Supply, and Yosemite Ziplines & Adventure Ranch. That's just one reason to do business locally! More prizes came from Mom's Stuff, Monica Bianchi, Betty Exum, Debbie Jones, Karen's Kreations, Sharon Power, LaVerne Schuler and Nancy & Bob Taniguchi.

Our guests were fed by Catheys Valley Food & Gas, Costco, Jantz Bakery, Pioneer Market, Pizza Factory Le Grand, Raley's, Ranch House Cafe and Starbucks on Olive.

We're also grateful for the help of Marianne Green and Sylvia Hardy, who groomed; Jesse Exum, Kinsey Haas, Delilah Jiminez, Steven Sanchez, John Villa and Bao Xiong, setup and operations; and Sylvia Hardy, Annie Harvey, Nancy Taniguchi and Kelley Vogel, who helped with the raffle.
