New Year at the Farm
Thanks to all who helped make this annual event another success.  Children and families from Seattle's Hope Place came to CJ's Stables in Enumclaw on Saturday, Jan 17.  There, they were able to get a taste of what the new year is like in the country.  They were able to meet and touch farm animals including horses, rabbits, and goats.  They experienced face painting, pony rides, and a warm lunch.  All the moms and kids left with goodie bags, and coats and outerwear were sent back to fill the closets at Hope Place.  Photo credit to Buck Jones Photography!
