A Letter From the President

I would like to announce that I am stepping down as President of Spring Grove Horse Show. Those of you that know me, know this was a difficult and soul searching decision. Horses are and always have been my passion and volunteering for Spring Grove Horse Show has been a huge part of that. There are numerous people I would like to thank - too numerous to list here. I would like to acknowledge, though, several special people. My children, who have always supported me, as officers and members and just being there for me. I love you all. Gloria Kraft, Barb Mollitor, and Mary Hood, your friendship and unwavering support means everything to me. Julie Loitfellner, your enormous help and support in the early years is appreciated more than you'll ever know. I would also like to thank the Village of Spring Grove. It has been a pleasure to work with you. In my twelve years as president and two years as Vice President, I have met and worked with many terrific people and organizations. Creating liasons with McHenry County Horse Club, McHenry County Conservation District, Lake County Mounted Posse, Equestrian Coalition for McHenry County and the Border Run - Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin Group. I met many wonderful fellow horse enthusiasts and forged new friendships for myself as well as for Spring Grove Horse Show. Living in our new reality presidents much trepidation and uncertainty in our daily lives, but for me being with my horse is my oasis. Anyone who owns or is around horses knows the close bond that is formed. My dream for SGHS was to keep it alive as a venue for young and old alike to celebrate the horse. I wish for Spring Grove Horse Show and all of you much prosperity and continued success.

Very Truly Yours,

Denise DeCicco,

President SGHS

Spring Grove Horse Show is in need of donors. In order to keep our class fees reasonable, the club needs donations to purchase ribbons, trophies, office goods, muck buckets and pay our park rental fees. Our generous donors help to defray these expenses and keep them at a minimum. Spring Grove Horse Show welcomes donations from club friends and companies. Please consider giving to Spring Grove Horse Show. See the "sponsors" tab at the top of this page to support our shows.
