The Riding Centre is a program supported by Rotary under our Services to People with Disabilities program. The Riding Centre Association is a nonprofit organization that provides a foundation in safe riding and the care and management of horses through affordable lessons to children and adults of diverse capabilities from Yellow Springs, Ohio and surrounding communities. People of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds benefit from day camps, group and private lessons, and our therapeutic riding program.

The Riding Centre was in 1959 to serve as an educational nonprofit dedicated to teaching the love, care, and understanding of horses. In 1989, Carolyn Bailey became the director of the Riding Centre. Carolyn began taking riding lessons at the Riding Centre at the age of 8.  She began teaching lessons at the age of 15 and later enrolled in The Cheff Center for the Handicapped where she received her certification to teach riding to the mentally, emotionally, and physically challenged.

Sheriff Burchett was sworn into office on January 2, 2017.  She has worked in law enforcement for the past 34 years.  She spent 29 years as a Clark County Deputy and worked 4 years in South Vienna where she prepared to run for Sheriff.  Sheriff Burchett is the only active female sheriff and is the third woman in Ohio history to hold that position.  She welcomes an open door policy for deputies and members of the community.  Sheriff Burchett encourages everyone to visit the Sheriff's office or join the ride along program.  
The Sheriff's office is currently comprised of the Sheriff, Chief Deputy, 3 Majors, 4 Lieutenants, 16 Sergeants, 117 Deputies, and 34 civilian support staff.  The office is divided into four divisions each being commanded by a Lieutenant. The four divisions are Criminal Investigations, Professional Standards, Jail, and Uniform Patrol.    
Last year the Highway Cleanup program spent 11,328 hours working cleanup duty.  The 911 call center took in 65,439 calls for the city and county.  The jail division has an average of 236 inmates per day with an average stay of 33.25 days.  The D.A.R.E program spent over 950 hours at local schools teaching 5th, 7th, and 9th graders about drug awareness.  Other programs offered by the department are Safety Village, Conceal Carry Courses, Explorers Course, Education Support, and the "Are You Okay" program.  
The Sheriff's Office currently needs community support to purchase a body scanner for the jail, hire new deputies, update the jail camera system, update an electrical medical records system, and purchase new radios and body cameras. The office would like to add a mental health and drug treatment program for inmates, perform TB screening and treatment, and purchase insulin and diabetic supplies for inmates.
