.Sat Feb 29th, 1pm- Our Annual Meeting. Rural Hall Fire Dept. 
177 Hwy 65 East Rural Hall. HERO will provide turkey, ham and paper products. Everyone needs to bring a side dish or desert. There is additional parking in school next door if needed. This will be a social event and information session. The HERO board will bring everyone up to date on 2019 activities and expectations for 2020. We are very excited! We will begin having training for any volunteers who wish to learn more about caring for horses. 
Our goal for 2020 is to relaunch HERO. We have worked very hard this past year to update our bylaws and policies. There has been a flurry of activity not obvious to everyone and we will update you at the annual meeting.
