Community Events for Thanksgiving in 2016

The 24 of November is quickly approaching us and we have two major events happening this Thanksgiving. We would love the communities involvement in planning, carrying out and participating in the events this year. We had a great turn out last Thanksgiving and are hope to maintain the success of last year.

Based on the success of our last Fun Run, we are holding another one. The Fun Run will be a 2 mile long run (or walk) and all families are invited. There will be four check, a checkpoint at every 0.5 miles, and at each check point you will provided water. This a great opportunity for the the whole family to encourage the whole family to get outside and keep fit, and with the great weather we are having, why not make use of it!

We are holding another event this Thanksgiving. We know how much everyone enjoyed last years Help the Tree’s event, so following the advice of the American Community Garden, we are running it again! You can help us to maintain the quality of our parkland by putting on some gloves and coming along. We are also looking for someone with a chainsaw. Any of the chainsaws listed on this site will do. We are hoping to find the best chainsaw to get the job done quickly, so something like the Echo CS-590 would be perfect, but any of the chainsaws listed on that site will do. But even pulling out weeds will be fine. Our aim is to clean up the area for current and future preservation. We will also be holding a market and selling local crafts and foods, and a jumping castle will be provided to keep the kids entertained. For anyone that has wanted to play a role in the community, now is the time.

We are looking forward to seeing you there and celebrating another great year.

mapETI Corral 2 promotes horsemanship and safe, enjoyable riding. Based in the west San Gabriel Valley, we are involved with trail-related issues such as equestrian access, trail maintenance, and equine advocacy.

Current issues include the Arroyo Seco Master Plan, closure of Ernie Debs Park to equestrian use, Altadena Crest Trail and other trail issues in that area, and the San Gabriel River Corridor Master Plan. Our ongoing projects include representing the equestrian community with local governments including the Cities of Pasadena and South Pasadena.

We have an open email list for equestrian related topics, and do occasional surface mailings to our ETI members.

Our general meeting is the second Thursday of the month. Recent meetings have been held at Burger Continental on Lake Street in Pasadena.

ETI is a national organization founded in 1944. Corral 2, founded in 1948, is the oldest active chapter in the organization, and we are proud of our long history of service to the equestrian community.
