It is with great pleasure that I welcome new PVDA 2020 Board of Directors members Carol Herron and Shira Rosenthal, we are so happy to have them join us. The rest of your Board remains largely the same. The 2020 Executive Committee is Christina Dale as Chair, Kyle Peiffer as Vice President and Chair of the Riders Committee, Sarah Yaroslaski as Secretary and Chair of the Ride for Life Committee, Carolyn Del Grosso as Treasurer and Chair of the Shows Committee, and I now serve as President and Chair of the Schooling Shows Committee. Linda Speer continues as our Awards Chair, the Chapters Committee is led by Christina Dale and Liz Erwin, Nancy Bowlus continues as our Education Committee Chair and Mimi Mack remains Fundraising & Marketing Chair as well as Chair of the Special Events Committee. Liz Erwin heads up the Membership Committee, Christina Dale is Chair of both the Newsletter Committee and the Website Committee. Shira Rosenthal also remains as our Schooling Show Treasurer.

Although 2020 has already proven to be a challenging time, I have hope because I have seen the current pandemic bringing our PVDA community together. Sharing our stories and photos with each other online, supporting each other, and making sure that friends and neighbors have what they need. With great challenges come great opportunities for kindness.

It is frustrating for us to have to cancel our early season shows, but our number one priority is to keep our membership and those who come to our shows from other clubs like VADA and NOVA safe. This may not be the show season we envisioned, but we remain a community with a common love of all things dressage and horses (and ponies). I am happy that in this newsletter we can share the 2020 Membership Directory. This combination newsletter and directory is going out to all members, the upcoming July newsletter will only be received in print if you’ve elected to receive newsletters in your membership profile. Check out page ___ for details on how to update your newsletter and contact information sharing preferences!

Stay tuned to the PVDA website for updates on our schooling and licensed shows and updates to Year End Award qualifications. Most of all, thank you all for being a part of PVDA and for sticking together as a community. Stay strong and safe, we are all in this together.

Sincerely Lynn Adams
