Check Back Soon for Open House Update!
Come to Open House, Mylestone’s big annual fund raiser! But not just any Open House - we're celebrating our 10th!!
Pioneer, at right, enjoys meeting a visitor to Open House.
We’re looking forward to meeting you and helping you get to know what Mylestone is all about. And for those of you who already know us, welcome back! Meet out new residents since last year’s Open House - Gem, Silas, Dornita’s Book, Cloudy and Clyde. As always, we will have our fabulous Silent Auction with the opportunity of winning wonderful prizes and baskets, plus our sell-out bake sale.
Vendors will be on hand with jewelry, beauty products, animal art, equine themed books, etc., and all donating a portion of their proceeds to Mylestone. And .... we will have on hand our gorgeous 2010 calendar! (pictured at left.) Jen Wenzel of Rein Photography has donated her wonderful photographic talents to make this a stunning tribute to the rescue horses. Be sure to pick yours up at Open House! (They will be available online after Open House.)
You can also meet Jen at Open House as well as local equine and animal artist Barbara Hornstra with a selection of her artwork. She donates a percentage of her proceeds to benefit Mylestone. Local Author Diana Tuorto will also be at Open House signing copies of her books with proceeds to benefit the horses.
Peruse lots and lots of books, CD's and DVD's for sale at unbelievable prices at our Lost Treasures table PLUS an array of beautiful Mylestone merchandise including plush ponies that look just like some of the rescued horses. We may even have some cute pony purses, (center, above), for your horse-loving little girls.
Would you like to promote Open House in your area? Download and print out our Open House Flyer so that you can distribute and post it in your area as well as send to your friends and let more people know about our annual event.
You can now join our Silent Auction! Please download our Silent Auction Bid Sheet if you would like to put in your bids early or if you may not be able to make it in person. Bid sheets must be in to Mylestone by October 9th - hurry!
Each year we have a huge selection of great gift baskets, several with a theme, such as the Halloween basket from last year.
If you'd like to bring something along to help Mylestone, please check our Wish List for Open House. There will be tubs and a pick-up truck where all donations will be collected.
If you're not able to make it to Open House this years, please consider making a donation to help the horses - they'd be ever so grateful. And be sure to check the web site after Open House for lots of great photos of the event!
Enjoy delicious home-baked goodies here or to take home, and our handmade chocolate Pony Pops (right rear, above)
So mark your calendar - October 11th from 12 - 4 pm - and join the whole gang for this year's 10th Annual Open House! And when you come, please be sure to thank a volunteer - all the beautiful horses you see wouldn't have had a chance without them.
p.s. - We regret to say, there are no dogs allowed at Open House as many of the horses spook in their presence. Thanks for leaving your pooches at home.
