What a month! What a year!!!!

In the first two weeks of December, MHHF staged two clinics:

  • Waterfowl in Henry County with seven youth participants, and

  • Our first Crossbow Deer/Turkey clinic in Cass County with five youth.

All our participants successfully completed the Missouri Hunter Education Certification course, proved proficiency at the supervised live-fire session and enjoyed a personally mentored hunt. Congratulations and “Thank You!” to our member volunteers.

This brings our total number of clinics to 75 and youth graduates to 451 since we started more than 10 years ago. We are on our way to achieving our goal of 500 “families served” by January 1, 2019.

Turning to the business of doing business - nominations are now open for Board of Director and officer positions. Presently, your Board has two nominations to recommend:

  • Mike Borgerding to a re-elected three-year term as Treasurer

  • Rehan Nana to an elected three-year term as At-Large Director

Both of their profiles can be found on our website.

All MHHF Members in good standing will receive an e-ballot soon.

The officer position of Secretary, a two-year elected term and two positions of At-Large Director are currently open. The descriptions of responsibilities are stated in our By-Laws which are available for download.

We are also updating our MHHF By-Laws. As soon as the wordsmithing is complete, we will share the changes with the membership for review. Any members wishing to comment prior to the Board vote is encouraged to attend our January Board of Directors Meeting, Thursday January 11th, 6 p.m. at Jess & Jim’s Steak House, Martin City.

Next month we will publish our calendar of events for 2018. Meanwhile, Safe and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
