Riding To The Top volunteer and Windham resident Pat Niboli has been selected by PATH International, an independent voice in equine-assisted services, as their Volunteer of the Year. The award is given to individuals who demonstrate ability, optimism, diversity and a true love of their equine companions. These reliable individuals commit their time and talents and have proven themselves essential to their therapeutic horsemanship centers. Niboli will be honored at a virtual awards ceremony on Nov. 5. Congratulations to Niboli on receiving such a prestigious honor.

Sarah Bronson, the executive director of RTT, received some recognition of her own. Windham delegation members Sen. Bill Diamond, Reps. Mark Bryant and Patrick Corey recognized her with a state proclamation at the RTT Board of Directors meeting in July. The delegation thanked Bronson for all she has done and continues to do to help make the Windham RTT center a leader in providing equine-assisted activities and therapies to individuals with a wide range of physical, mental and behavioral challenges. Gary Plummer, former state representative and state senator and currently RTT board member, said the proclamation was special recognition and that it was well-deserved. All the best to Bronson for all the hard work she does for her organization.
