Our first show was a success. Thanks to all our exhibitors and sponsors for their support. We had a great dinner prepared by Fadi's Fabulous Foods. Congrats to all our 2015 year-end award winners! EOQHA also offers several special awards to honour our volunteers and former board members.
Good Will Award
In 2015 EOQHA was fortunate to have an outstanding individual who donated countless hours of his time from preparation of the show pen, organizing fun events for exhibitors and their families and allowing the EOQHA Summer Sizzler to be one of three circuits to host the OABFS/NSBA futurity series of classes. This individual is committed to the success of EOQHA and we appreciate his dedication and support. This year's winner not only volunteers his time but is also a sponsor of EOQHA. This year's recipient of the EOQHA Good Will award is Dave Aitchison. We would like to thank him for his support and hard work in 2015!
Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame award was introduced to recognize individuals who have played a vital role in the development of the Eastern Ontario Quarter Horse Association. This year's inductees have been involved with EOQHA for many years holding multiple positions including Director, Secretary and Vice President from the years of 1992 to 2016. They were also exhibitors and their family enjoyed competing at our shows. They are volunteers and often play a pivotal role in fundraising initiatives. Part of this duo has spent countless hours preparing our show pen, arena and round pen.
This year, EOQHA would like to recognize a couple vs an individual to induct into our Hall of Fame. We would like to congratulate Doug and Janey MacDougall. Doug and Janey, you have been long time supporters of EOQHA and always focused on the success of EOQHA. Thank you for supporting EOQHA for the past 24 years!!
