The time is still
creating disaster plan
Kevin Jochens has started working with
Disaster Prepardness in Missouri. He has provided this article and
will be providing updates as he continues his work with this group.
"With the trend toward unsettled and dangerous
weather, preparedness for disasters both natural and man made has become
a topic of much discussion.
Those of us who handle horses on a regular basis
know the challenges they can present under the best of circumstances. It
was with that in mind that I was part of a conference call for the group
ADPAC (Animals in Disaster Planning and Action Committee), a part of
SEMA, Missouri's disaster relief agency. Representatives of
organizations ranging from the Missouri Humane Society, the Missouri
Department of Agriculture , the US Department of Agriculture, SEMA, the
Missouri Veterinary Practitioners Association, the Missouri Department
of Health and Senior Services and others took part in the call which was
specifically to begin forming a plan of action regarding animals in
This initial call was more about the formation
of the group and it's goals, as opposed to specifics as to disaster
preparedness. I am now a member of this Committee . As we move forward
specific protocols will be formed to aid Missouri's animals and their
owners in cases of extreme emergency. As those are formulated, I will
keep everyone apprised."

Mid-Winter Wrap up!
The GKCAHA Midwinter Celebration and Hi-Point
Awards were held on January 26th at Garozzo’s Italian restaurant in
Lee’s Summit. The weather cooperated and allowed everyone to get to the
event and home safely.
About 70 members, family and friends gathered
to enjoy great Italian food, good conversation and celebrate the success
of the Hi-Point winners.
Along with the traditional awards, there
were new categories established to recognize those other designees that
help and support everyone at the shows.
The Stable Dog awards were divided into three
The Horse Show Outlaw award was given
to Gordy, who is owned by Elise Worman at Liberty Meadows Training
The Free Spirit & Selective Hearing
award was given to Joplin and Cramer who are owned by Jeanna & Alan
The Best of Behavior award went to
Choppo, who is owned by Kevin Jochens family at Equestrian Heights.
GKCAHA considers the Midwinter Celebration a
great success with positive feedback from the attendees regarding the
food, location, service and event. This was all made possible by the
Board of Directors, who made the decision to spend part of the profit
earned at the previous MO-KAN Border Bonanza on the new venue and to
subsidize the cost of the meal by $10 per person. This made the cost for
attending a very reasonable $10 per person for the entire evening.
Future events will be evaluated every year, based on the success of the
Spring Show, and other considerations by the Board of Directors with the
financial stability of the club always placed in the forefront.
Saturday January 25th on your calendar for 2014. That will be the
scheduled date for the next GKCAHA Midwinter Celebration and Hi-Point
Awards. The place and time will be determined later.
