*****NEW MEETING LOCATION*****
The Delaware Equine Council's monthly meetings will now be held at the Harrington Fire Department conference room located at 20 Clark Street (Rt 14), just west of Route 13 in Harrington, DE.
This is a great location with plenty of parking. The conference room has its own exterior entrance next to the community hall entrance. We will have a sign at the entrance to the conference room which will be visible from the main parking lot.
Our next meeting is September 15th @ 7:00pm. Come join us! Dr. Michele Egli with Delmarva Equine Clinic will be presenting information about Cushings Disease in horses beginning at 7pm at our monthly membership meeting. Our regular meeting will take place after Dr. Egli’s presentation. Please come and listen to Dr. Egli to learn more about a disease that can affect any of our horses especially as they age. We meet the third Monday of each month except for June and December which have no meetings.
Much thanks and appreciation goes to the Harrington Fire Department for giving us the opportunity to use this room.
