- The Versatility Issue of the Newsletter should be in Lippitt Club member hands by now. Our President, Claire Wagner, has stated in her President’s Letter that the Club is seeking a volunteer in good standing to fill the position of Membership Coordinator. We wish to thank Heather Pinet for stepping in this past Fall to jump start this position for the Club. This was a temporary project for Heather, but her hard work was appreciated.
The Membership Coordinator position was created to provide better communication and a more expedient annual renewal/new membership process for everyone. The renewals and new memberships for the 2017 Membership Year were processed and forwarded to the Directory Committee to allow the Directory to go out in a timely manner.
The Board is now seeking a Lippitt Club member to step into the position by mid-Summer to allow them to be familiar with the computer programs used for Membership and steps in the process in time for the November to January renewals. A full description of this position was printed in an earlier newsletter and is available from Claire Wagner. If you are interested, please all or email any Board member.

- Recognition as an Endangered Horse:
The Lippitt Morgan is now on two organizations’ endangered list. For those that love the “classic” Morgan, this is a tragedy. The numbers of Morgans, including Lippitt Morgans has gone down each year for the last 10 years. The number of people breeding Lippitts (and other “families” in the Morgan breed) has gone down also due to the economy. If you love the Morgan and love the original traits that made the Morgan such a special horse, the Lippitt is for you. Join us to learn about the Lippitt Morgan and help preserve these wonderful horses.
The Lippitt Club, Inc. is now a proud sponsor of The Livestock Conservancy. To learn more, please visit their website or Facebook page.
The Morgan breed was started with a single stallion – Figure, also known as Justin Morgan. The Lippitt Club strives to preserve and promote the original Morgan horse.
