Christmas shopping fair planned at Topaz Lake

Some of the talented crafters, artists and shop owners in the Topaz, Coleville and Walker area have come together to present their first Topaz Christmas Shopping Treasure Hunt on Nov. 23.

Participants can enjoy a day of fun and relaxation in the Topaz area searching unique shops for the perfect gift. And, along with having a fun filled day and a chance to win some terrific prizes, some of the money will go directly to help support a wonderful organization — Kids and Horses Therapeutic Riding Center in Minden, Nev.

Kids and Horses is a program that offers a bridge leading to a life of freedom and self-fulfillment for children and adults with physical and/or emotional disabilities. Founded in April of 1999 by Sam Waldman, this program offers horsemanship as a means of therapy that improves strength, balance, coordination and self-esteem. More than a riding program, Kids and Horses is a philosophy that is based on the concept that every human being, regardless of their disabilities, can benefit from an equine relationship. Sam Waldman died three years ago, but his legacy lives on and his dream is coming true. Kids and Horses is now an accredited member of North American Riding for the Handicapped Association and the only accredited riding center in the state of Nevada.

To participate in this event, make the first stop at Topaz Lodge and Casino and pay a $10 entry fee, which will go directly to Kids and Horses. The event is scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m. Participants will receive a souvenir map of the area with all the numbered stops they must have signed off

by someone at all the different places. Each stop must be signed off in order to qualify for one of several fantastic prizes.
