Belvoir Christian Academy, formerly known as the Lutheran School, announces the 43rd annual “Lutheran School Horse Show” scheduled for Saturday, June 1, at the Tri-State Exhibition Center in Cleveland. 

Belvoir Christian Academy will host the annual event held in Cleveland. Proceeds from the event will benefit BCA students in need of partial scholarships.  

As event coordinator for over 30 years, Audrey Naylor says her efforts in leading the event are in appreciation of the benefits her children received from their academic career at the school. “My children attended the Lutheran School, and it laid a strong academic and spiritual foundation for both of them,“ said Ms. Naylor. “I’m thankful for the impact that the school had, and still has on my family, and I hope that the horse show proceeds can provide current and future students the opportunity to attend and benefit as my children did.” 

Ms. Naylor mentioned that the event is the longest running one-day horse show in the southeast. Two performances are scheduled on June 1 at 12 and 6 p.m. Tickets for adults are $3; $2 for children, 12 and under. For more information, contact Ms. Naylor at 892-5392.

This story is very true. Late last Sunday afternoon, ... (click for more)
