Horse people make a difference

Published 9:56am Friday, February 15, 2013

Claudette Robinson, of the Carolina Carriage Club (CCC) was pleased at the results, the week before Christmas, when her request in This Week in Tryon Horse Country resulted in enough donated food items to help both Operation Hope and Outreach Ministry.

“Horse people,” including those who once had horses, wanted horses and loved horses to name a few, joined in to help. Carol Milne, who regularly escapes winter in Michigan to enjoy riding and driving in Tryon horse country, helped divide and deliver the donations. Both food pantries were running low and greatly appreciated the gifts.
