Park City Equine Partnership holds barn concert
March 4, 2011
The newly established Park City Equine Partnership is hosting a Barn Concert to gain support and get people excited about their organization, said Eileen Galoostian, vice chairwoman of the PCEP.
The group, which recently applied for non-profit status, is a partnership and conservation with the goal of expanding public horse trails oand facilities in the area.
"We want to get the community’s equestrians and non-equestrians, who have similar interests regarding open space, public trails, private areas, together to have fun and get to know each other," Galoostian said.
The event, which will take place at the Chaparral Ranch, Equestrian Cooperative, 8589 Meadow View Road, will feature a silent auction and live music by Kamas-based cowboy swing band Barbwire and Lace. A suggested donation of $20 will help cover event costs, including the band.
"Barbwire and Lace is being kind of enough to come and perform," Galoostian said. "We thought it would be great to have a band like them to boost up the energy of the event. They are donating their time and hope they get a little bit of compensation through donations."
Food will be brought potluck-style to help concertgoers create a sense of community, Galoostian said.

"When you have a party and people bring a dish of food they have made, it’s like they are bringing and sharing a little bit of themselves," she said. "It’s a good way to get to know each other."
The planning committee chose the Chaparral Ranch because it’s a large, warm space, Galoostian said.
"It’s a comfortable place for people to talk about how they can get involved with the partnership and how we can help them with their concerns," she said. "They can discuss some of their interests and concerns and, of course, dance to Barbwire and Lace."
The Park City Barn Concert, Barbwire and Lace, will take place at the Chaparral Ranch, Equestrian Cooperative, 8589 Meadow View Road, on Saturday, March 5, beginning at 6 p.m. To RSVP and learn more, visit http://www.PCEquinePartnership.org or http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=yikvxteab&oeidk=a07e3gyh83xb80885f1&oseq =
