We are very pleased to bring you this exciting announcement. Remember the folks that like to clean stalls and donate shavings? They just happen to own a great place in Chico to have fun. We have been sitting on our hands trying not to leak this until the date and time could be nailed down, and today arrangements were finalized. We would like to officially invite you, your family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, and anyone else that you think would have fun, to come to our first NorCal Equine Rescue Fun Day on June 24th, from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family, the list of attractions and fun things to do are just growing by leaps and bounds.
So what’s this all about? Cal Skate in Chico, CA has graciously offered to host our fun day. They have an indoor skating arena, an 18 hole miniature golf course, a batting cage, and a host of other fun things to do. We will have our miniature mascots, Dottie and Macho man, there, along with a photographer, so the little people in your life, or the young at heart, can get their picture taken with the oh so adorable mini’s. We are going to have a free raffle, a silent auction, and a lot of other fundraisers too. This is going to be one day you will most certainly want to take off of work and be there, so let your boss know now. Again that is June 24th, 2009 from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Keep an eye peeled on the blog for more announcements regarding this wonderful day of fun in the sun!
We are going to be having a silent auction, and already we have artists donating pictures, pottery, and other nifty items. We are accepting items for the silent auction and the free raffle, if you would like donate something, we would appreciate it very much. You can mail it to our mailing address: NorCal Equine Rescue, P O Box 6108, Oroville Ca 95966 or you can contact us, 530-534-7742 to make other arrangements.

This is the first of 2 planned fun days this summer, the next involves rafts, a river, and sun sometime in August.
Thanks to your generosity the auction fund is currently at $395.00. Please remember to help spread the word, horses lives at the March Roseville Livestock auction are counting on you. These horses are in jeopardy of being sent to a slaughter house and being brutally killed. We are also taking in a lot of owner surrenders, but these horses fate is practically sealed just by being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Jason reports that he is feeling better and he will probably start writing emails. There is over 150 that need to be written, so, tomorrow he’ll get to work on it. For those that have adoption holds on horses, have no fear, your hold will be good for 1 week after you are approved to adopt.
