Upmier Arena Dedication and Open House
August 7th was a day to reminisce about the beginnings of Miracles in Motion, due in large part of Verne Upmier. Our indoor arena now bears his name. A shadow box held quotes about his life as well as photos of “the ultimate horseman”. Jackie Wallace shared her memories about how it all started in 1988. We’ve shared her remarks here.
It was also a time to check out the addition to the arena which houses an accessible bathroom as well as a therapy room, kitchenette, storage closet and viewing window to the indoor arena. The pavilion has been enclosed which make is so much more functional for gatherings such as these. Thanks to all who attended and donated to support the capital improvements made in 2020.
