FQHR Roundup and Review comes to the Oklahoma State Fair for 2006

From the desk of Joel Shook:
We now have a letter of commitment from the Oklahoma State Fair. It is time to start rounding up sponsorships. The best time to solicit sponsorships is usually the first of the year. We are looking forward to the move to Oklahoma and are sure that it will be a positive one for the FQHR. Sponsorship will only add to what we can do at this Roundup. We want to thank the Oklahoma Affiliate for all their support and for dealing with the Oklahoma State Fair on a personal basis representing the FQHR. 

From the desk of Marilyn Duncan, OkFQHR President:
OkFQHR Members: The Roundup and Review coming to Oklahoma is a prime opportunity for us to increase membership and awareness of our organization both locally and nationally. The Oklahoma Affiliate gets a monetary portion of the sponsorships whether the sponsorships are monetary or merchandise. If you can help obtain sponsorships it will benefit both the local affiliate and the national organization. Please be reminded that our own sponsorship drive will be in full force within the next couple of weeks as well.
Also, we have been asked to choreograph the Opening Ceremonies which probably will take place on Wednesday evening before the show starts. There will be a mixer following to enable everyone to get acquainted and keep the atmosphere we all love to show in. Anyone who would like to help get that organized please contact me.

Thanks,
Marilyn Duncan
