FENCE stall sale success despite chilly weather
Published 5:23 pm Thursday, April 4, 2013
A chilly, overcast day did not deter the crowds at the Spring 2013 Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) yard (actually stall) sale.
A large group of sellers and buyers turned out to get good deals and get rid of extra stuff. Everything from antiques to clothes was eagerly bought and sold. The hot soups and drinks provided by TROT (Therapeutic Riding of Tryon) were very popular and the money raised will help fund this FENCE therapeutic riding program. TROT lesson volunteer Mary-Lu Elias of Campobello, said, “The cold weather certainly helped us to sell out of the hot beverages and our volunteer’s home-made soups and chili. Look for a bigger ‘menu’ when we do it again!”
The next FENCE stall sale is set for Sept. 7, 2013 at the FENCE equestrian facility at 3381 Hunting Country Rd. Tryon, North Carolina. For more information call 828-859-9021 or check the FENCE web site www.fence.org. The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center’s mission is to provide facilities and focus for education, recreation and preservation in nature studies and equestrian activities with the aim of enhancing these endeavors to enrich the quality of life for the community.
