Compton Junior Posse, whose mission is “Keeping Kids on Horses…And Off the Streets!” has had a spectacular 2011 and also has a long list of people to thank. Each year, many professional and generous people donate their time, talents, gifts and facilities to help foster these young adults to become the best they can be –- both on and off their horses. Many life skills and lessons are learned from these mentors. For this, Compton Junior Posse says “Thank you!” Be sure to mark your calendars for CJP’s annual fund-raiser being held next spring on Saturday, May 12. It’s a memorable evening and is the major supporting event that CJP conducts for the year. CJP is now accepting tax-deductible donations for this event and thanks you in advance.
