The best part of our experience is the staff. This is the 3rd year we have been involved with SHOT (Stock Horses of Texas) and the 1st year we have run in on our own. Not only has the staff always been professional, but the do it with a smile on their faces regardless of the chaos surrounding them.

Thank you all so very much for all of your help preparing for and cleaning up after the Father-Daughter Dance. It was a HUGE success. All the dads were so pleased with the dance and glad to be at the Civic Center. The ladies of Mother’s Culture Club want to thank you for allowing us to have this wonderful event at the Civic Center. All the money that we raised will go back out into the community to help our children in our area. Such a blessing! Thank you again!
