Little Brook Farm plans B.I.T.S. anniversary party

BITS321Some of our longer-term members are aware of Little Brook Farm, the Chatham facility that is the oldest equine rescue center in the nation. Our club as a whole and some members as individuals have financially contributed to the non-profit over the past few years to further its training and rescue programs.

One of Little Brook’s major programs is called B.I.T.S. — which stands for Balanced Innovative Teaching Strategies, a state-approved curriculum in its 30th year of operation.

To mark that milestone, founder Lynn Cross, who has made presentations to our club several times, is hosting an anniversary party at The Hill at Little Brook Farm beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 16. It’s a cocktail-attire event, with tickets priced at $140 in advance or $160 at the door, all tax deductible. Admission covers an open beer-and-wine bar and an array of hors d’oeuvres, plus a silent auction and a live auction.

All donations will go toward completion of the farm’s indoor arena and provide funding for B.I.T.S. Tickets are available via PayPal, or by sending a check payable to B.I.T.S. Inc. to P.O. Box 127, Old Chatham, NY 12136.

Little Brook is located at 548 County Route 13 in Old Chatham. Phone: 518-821-5506 or 794-8104.
