Community Awards Night Coming Soon

Antrim Grange to Honor the Community

Antrim Grange’s annual Community Awards Night will be held May 15th at 7:00 p.m. at the Antrim Grange Hall. Community Citizen, Educator, Agriculturalist, Community Spirit, and Special Service awards will be presented to recipients selected by the members of the Grange.

Invited to present a program following the awards is HorseTenders Mustang Foundation founder, Andrej Kokal, a highly decorated 24-year veteran of the United States Air Force as a combat fighter pilot, instructor and mission commander. Kokal will talk about his family’s horse farm in Greenfield and how his foundation is proud to enjoin veterans and their families with the legendary American mustang in sharing mutual benefits of emotive healing, comfort, and security. His sons, Nik and Kris, who will also be present, were featured in the 2011 documentary film “Wild Horse, Wild Ride” as they successfully participated in the Extreme Mustang Challenge, using non-punitive methods in a 100 day test to convert a completely wild mustang into a valued companion and competitor. A Chinese auction will be held throughout the evening to raise funds for the Kokals’ foundation.

All interested and grateful community members are invited to come to this event and help us thank our local volunteers, to learn about a very special family that supports military service members at a time when little government assistance is made available to help them to reintegrate with their families and society, and to taste-test entries in the Grange’s coffee cake baking contest at refreshment time.
