2nd Annual Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction


Helping handicapped individuals gain a sense of personal confidence and freedom is a worthy cause.  Doing so while enjoying an evening meal with entertainment makes for a great event.   

New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding, Inc. (“NBTR”) is holding its 2nd Annual Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction on Saturday, September 27th at Pine Spring Stables. The venue is located at 600 Bill Ferguson Road in Bowling Green. The Silent Auction begins at 5:00 p.m.; Dinner from a local restaurant will be at 6:00 p.m. followed by a Live Auction and Entertainment.  The NBTR horse barn will be creatively decorated by Ivory Grace Event Planning.   

"All proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefits our program and our mission to serve individuals with disabilities through the power of the horse," said Michele Vise, Executive Director of NBTR. "Our operational budget comes directly from community support, and not from participants' fees."  Event tickets are $65 per person, and sponsorship opportunities begin at $500.

Each day many challenged individuals benefit from the certified instruction received at NBTR. To discover the good work being done there and to learn more about obtaining advanced tickets or sponsorship opportunities for the Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction, please visit their website under Schedule of Events; follow them on Facebook or call. "We have been blessed with great support in the past, and hope to gain more as people discover how therapeutic riding helps grow a stronger community," Vise said.

New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding is a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals with mental, physical, behavioral and emotional disabilities by enhancing their lives through the power of horses. The rhythmic motion of a horse allows those with limitations to enjoy the same freedoms we often take for granted, as it helps improve balance, muscle strength and flexibility. Riders at NBTR are involved in activities that promote gross and fine motor skills, cognitive ability and social skills. This process ultimately helps each individual gain self-esteem, confidence and coordination in all aspects of their daily lives.

If you any questions or want to help with this fundraising event, please call NBTR Board Member, Lauren Marley at (502) 609-7503, email at laurenjmarley@gmail.com or Board Member, Jackie Reynolds at (270) 202-9114, email at jreyn40212@aol.com.

Saint Monkey is a stunning debut that follows the lives of two girls growing up in Eastern Kentucky’s Black community shortly after the Korean War. It is a coming-of-age story made at once gripping and poignant by the wild energy of the Jazz Era and the stark realities of segregation. Marrying musical prose with lyric vernacular, Saint Monkey delivers a stirring portrait of American storytelling and marks the appearance of an auspicious new voice in literary fiction.  Jacinda has published short fiction in numerous literary magazines and anthologies such as African Voices, Carve Magazine, The Maryland Review, and Xavier Review. Her nonfiction has been published in two different series of Chicken Soup for the Soul. Townsend will discuss her new book on Tuesday, September 9 at 6 p.m. Free tickets are available at all library locations or by emailing Lisa Rice: lisar@warrenpl.org.

The Warren County Public Library will host David Bell on Tuesday, October 7. He will discuss his book The Forgotten Girl.  David Bell was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and spent countless hours at the Westwood Public Library developing his love of reading. He completed undergraduate coursework at Indiana University, an M.A. at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and then for a Ph.D. at the University of Cincinnati. Bell moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky where he accepted a tenure-track job at Western Kentucky University. While at WKU, David sold his novel Cemetery Girl to NAL/Penguin. More books followed, The Forgotten Girl being his most recent.
The novel follows Jason Danvers as the past arrives uninvited at his door when his younger sister, Hayden, a former addict, asks Jason and his wife to take care of her teenage daughter for forty-eight hours while she handles some business in town. When Hayden never returns, her disappearance brings up more unresolved problems from Jason’s past. When a body is discovered in the woods, the mysteries of his sister’s life—and possible death—deepen. And one by one these events will shatter every expectation Jason has ever had about families, about the awful truths that bind them and the secrets that should be taken to the grave. Bell will discuss his new book on Tuesday, October 7 at 6 p.m. Free tickets are available at all library locations or by emailing Lisa Rice: lisar@warrenpl.org. The event will take place at the Bob Kirby Branch Library. For more information, call (270) 781-4882 or visit www.warrenpl.org.

The Warren County Public Library will host New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson on Tuesday, October 21. He will be discussing his new book Wait for Signs.
Craig Johnson’s character, Walt Longmire was first introduced ten years ago in Johnson’s Hillerman Award-winning short story, “Old Indian Trick.”  After the creation of the Walt Longmire book series, which is also a hit television series on A&E titled Longmire, Johnson continued to write short stories about Walt’s life that do not appear in the novels. Each year on Christmas Eve Johnson released a new short story about Walt’s life. There were many requests for these short stories to be put into book form and now Craig Johnson has done that by releasing this compilation of twelve Longmire short stories in his new book, Wait for Signs.  Wait for Signs gives glimpses of Walt’s past from the incident in “Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious “Messenger,” where the majority of the action takes place in a Port-A-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fan’s shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.  Johnson will discuss his new book on Tuesday, October 21 at 6 p.m. at the Bob Kirby Branch Library. Free tickets are available at all library locations. For more information, visit www.warrenpl.org or email Lisa Rice at lisar@warrenpl.org.
