GAIT TRC of Milford Celebrates New Logo
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce, supporters along with the staff of GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center located on Foster Hill in Milford, PA, unveiled the new sign with the new logo, Thursday, December 15th. Signs-on-Anything created this for GAIT TRC encompassing their new logo, name alteration, and affiliation with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International organization, PATH Intl. The sign will be hung at the entrance of the GAIT facility.
The Executive Director and representatives from the Board of Directors, volunteers, staff, and horses were all present for the Pike County Chamber of Commerce as well as the Tri-state Chamber of Commerce, both of which GAIT TRC is a member, to help commemorate this day. This ends the celebrations of GAIT’s 16th year and begins the future of GAIT. These past 16 years have been challenging with moving horses and programs to Milford from Montague in 1998, the barn-destroying fire in 2005 and the purchasing of its current property in 2004. But through it all GAIT has sustained itself through grants, fundraisers, and donations from people who know that the horse can bring joy, organization, and a sense of freedom and independence to people with special needs.
As GAIT heads into its 17th year of operation in this area with its 9 horses, 3 instructors, 4 staff, 7-member board and over 100 (!) volunteers, we invite each of you to our Gala event coming up on September 22, 2012. Please watch for more information in the up-coming year. If you are interested in giving a year-end donation to GAIT, please contact us at 570-409-1140. Donations are tax-deductible.
