MEWA Takes Shape

Maine Equine Welfare Alliance is on the move!!  We are refining our committee structure, celebrating our first birthday, and building membership and Facebook fans.
It has become critical to develop a MEWA logo to create easy recognition in the horse community. 
The Education, Public, and Political Awareness (EPPA) Committee is challenging one and all to put on your creative thinking caps and submit your ideas for a MEWA logo. 
The logo will be used on all MEWA forms, brochures, posters, and any fundraiser items such as ball caps, tote bags, T-shirts etc.  It should be printer/silk-screen/embroidery friendly.  The work submitted must be original and free from all copyrights.  The designer must be willing to relinquish all rights to publication of the logo if it is chosen.

All logo suggestions should be emailed to or brought to the next MEWA meeting on May 18, 2011 at the Augusta Maine Farm Bureau Office at 6:30 p.m.

If you have an idea, but feel you lack the talent to draw it well, please take a shot at sketching it and submit it anyway!  If the concept is chosen, we will find someone who can polish it. This is not a contest in that there is no tangible award for the chosen logo author/artist.   There will be recognition on the MEWA web site and Facebook page, and the satisfaction of knowing that your effort will help solidify recognition of MEWA, its goals, and its efforts to help Maine equids.


We hope to receive many great proposals and thank each contributor for their efforts!

At the July 2010 meeting, the Maine Equine Welfare Alliance elected temporary subcommittee chairpersons. These are fellow Mainers, stepping up to help struggling horses and horse owners. Way to go, y'all.

These folks will meet soon with their subcommittees and finalize their positions. Members of each subcommittee will be able to confirm their nominations or elect someone else.
They are (in photo, top row, L-R, bottom row, L-R):
Missy Libby, Political and Legal Action; Donna Hughes, Resources; Janelle Tirrell, Vet and Farrier Assistance; Michelle Melaragno, Hay Bank; Jan and Jim Marconi, Temporary Foster and Rescue Assistance; Melinda Langmeyer, Education and Public Awareness.
