KEEP Schedules First Town Hall Meeting

The organization formed to educate the public and legislators on the importance of the horse industry to the Kentucky economy has scheduled its first town hall meeting. The group also has changed its name once again.

The Kentucky Equine Education Project, first known as the Kentucky Equine Education Alliance and most recently the Kentucky Equine Education Partnership, will hold the meeting at 6 p.m. EDT May 26 at the visitors' center at the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington.

KEEP officials, including chairman Brereton Jones and honorary chairman John Gaines, will discuss the state of the industry as well as the organization's objectives for 2004.
