Lido Fund question

Hi, All -

I made what I think is an exceptionally nice braided horsehair and sterling silver bracelet for my friend, Ellen. (Two of the three horses whose braids were in the bracelet are CS, BTW!) In lieu of any reimbursement on the piece, I suggested she make a contribution to the Lido Fund. But - alas! - she couldn't find any instructions on how to make the check out, or where to send the $$$ on the HOA website.

Could someone in the know please help? And perhaps someone could add a page regarding the fund onto the website for easier referral of future donors?

Re: Lido Fund question

Great idea, and maybe someone on the committee could also write up an account of how many horses have been helped by the Lido fund, it may encourage others to donate so we can help even more horses. It is always nice to learn who and where they are now.

Re: Lido Fund question

Whoops, we had a information link at one time but it must have gotten taken off by mistake.

You can always send any donations to Della Norush, HOA Treasurer, 2295 E 1230 N, Attica. In. 47918

make a notation on it for the Lido's fund and she will make sure it gets to the right person.

I will ask Gretchen to get a link with the information back up.

Re: Lido Fund question

Thanks, Tom. After I posted, I located info on Steve Edwards site about the Lido Fund. It listed Margaret Odger as the administrator. Is this till correct?

Re: Lido Fund question

It is, Margaret is the Admin for it. I just didn't have her address handy.

Re: Lido Fund question

I will re-establish the Lido Fund link and story this weekend.

Margaret's Address is: Margaret Odgers; 1601 Little Rock-Jacktown Rd; Carlisle, KY

I don't have the zip code handy will get it posted later today.


Re: Lido Fund question

Thanks, Gretchen!
