One of the more fabulous traditions in Chester County is Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show.  And it turns 70 on this upcoming August 31st!!!ludwigs 4

Ludwig’s Corner is the tradition that many, many people turned out to save at Christmastime a couple of years ago when West Vincent Township wanted to exercise eminent domain for private gain on this beautiful piece of land and Chester County tradition.

The Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show is going strong and is looking forward to their 2013 show!  They asked me to post about the show and to mention that they are looking for volunteers.  So if you are new to the area or always wanted to volunteer, now is your chance!

Here is the note I received from the volunteer chair:

Saturday, August 31, 2013  Marks the 70th Annual Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show & Country Fair, Glenmoore, PA!!

We are seeking volunteers to help with the 70th Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show & Country Fair, Glenmoore, PA, which will run Saturday, August 31, 2013 through Monday, September 2, 2013.  Volunteers are needed to help serve Food, Sell Tickets, Park Cars, Help with Children’s Games, and help in the Volunteer Tent!  This horse show is run with all volunteers and requires approximately 250 volunteers to support our efforts each Labor Day weekend.  Without the assistance of volunteers, this 3-day event would not be possible. http://www.ludwigshorseshow.org/Home/Volunteering/tabid/76/Default.aspx

Last year, the Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Association was pleased to have the assistance of non-profit groups, The Owen J. Roberts Band Supporters and the Downingtown East Soccer Booster Club, along with the Knights of Columbus from St. Elizabeth’s Parish.  *In addition, the Pickering Hunt Pony Club provides 100 hours of volunteer service to the horse show grounds, as well as providing volunteers to support the event. This event has become a Community-wide event, and is known as a jewel of events in Chester County, PA.

We would appreciate any notifications that you can provide to help us recruit volunteers, and then to let the public know about this great event over Labor Day weekend.

Many thanks in advance.
