Volunteer of the Month – July 2019
Annette’s journey as a Kentucky Horse Park volunteer began in 2000, alongside the program itself! With nearly 20 years of service to the park and 1,000 volunteer hours, Annette is a true park devotee. She has contributed so much to the programs and events at the park, and continues to support the mission of both the park and the Foundation. Annette’s dedication, time, and most importantly, patience, is what this facility needs to keep the wheels turning. The KHP hopes that she will spend another 20 years representing the park with us, we thank her for her service!
