WAWOTA - Happy anniversary to the Wheels and Saddle Club who are celebrating their 40th year.  

In 1982, a group of horse enthusiasts joined together to form the club, which held clinics, training sessions, film nights and numerous other events to increase their knowledge and interest in driving horses. Membership covered a large area with average yearly membership of 30. Besides promoting driving and riding skills it has, over the years, promoted good fellowship.
