Knollwood is the place to be this Saturday!

 

We're hosting our Spring Open House from 11 am to 3 pm.  Bring your friends who might be interested in riding lessons, and they can enjoy a free mini-lesson, take a tour, and even help paint Forest.  New customers will also receive a 10% discount on any lessons, including our popular summer riding school,  purchased at the Open House.

 

 

After we finish lessons for the day, the helpers annual food drive will come to a close with Helper Olympics VII.  Helpers are gathering food donations for The Food Pantry of Waukesha County, and are competing to see which team can collect the most food and cash donations.  The winning team will enjoy a pizza party courtesy of the Knollwood Knockouts. There's still time to donate to the team of your choice!  You can shop for a food kit that contains:

  • Box of cereal
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned vegetable
  • Boxed potato
  • Packaged Gravy
  • Jell-o
  • Boxed dessert

Please be sure to mark your bag(s) with the day of the week you'd like to support!

If you don't have time to shop, helpers are also accepting checks made out to The Food Pantry of Waukesha County.  One food kit equals a $15 donation, and all donations are tax deductible.

 

While the last of the food donations are counted, the helpers will compete against each other in 'games of skill.'  Events include a dance contest with horse show ribbons as props and a blanket race. Helpers will enjoy a cook out after the event where awards are presented for the most donations.

 

It's sure to be a memorable day at Knollwood, and we hope you'll join the fun and contribute to a great cause as the fabulous helpers help their neighbors in need.
