From Janice Schilling - ORVLA Board President 2021

By now we have all welcomed in 2021 and are continuing to do our best to stay healthy and somewhat happy with everything going on in our world.  During these times it makes us appreciate our family and friends, including our 2 and 4 legged critters.

The Board held a busy January meeting.  We were able to greet Deb Gaskill as the new Topline editor and she explained her hopes moving forward as the editor.  I would like to invite all the ORVLA members to submit happenings going on in your lives.  Our Topline can only be as good as we make it!  Doesn't take long to put something together and send too Deb.  I realize we are all busy but please share your thoughts, Ideas and happenings! 

I would like to thank Shani for her time she dedicated to being our editor while having such a busy life with her wonderful family. We really appreciate her work and wish her well in everything going forward.  THANK YOU!!

I am so looking forward to hopefully having the shows that are planned for 2021.  We need to be willing to follow the directives so we can proceed with the plans that are being made for these events.  The 2021 ORVLA Show will be May 22nd at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds.  The entry form is available on the ORVLA website and in Topline.  Hope to see you there. 

​One of the things that I really missed this year was our Christmas get together so as President I made sure to reach out the Union Hill Church for a date.  We are on their calendar for December 4, 2021 - Yeah!  Please save the date!

​If you have not sent in your membership for 2021 please do so.  Membership forms are found on this website under the membership tab.  This is a reminder to please join and keep our organization alive and well.  I have retired as a llama mamma but sure would miss not keeping in touch with my ORVLA family!
