Between hunting seasons, the MHHF Board and volunteers take time to evaluate what we’re doing and work on other projects that support our long-term goals. The list below highlights a few of the things we’re working on. If you see something you’re interested in, please let me or Stacie Hubler know. We’re always looking for new ideas and appreciate the extra support.
Clinic Manual: The committee has completed revisions to our Clinic Manual. Over the years, both regulations change as do our processes. The Board of Directors will review for approval at the next quarterly board meeting in July. Copies will be available for all members.
MHHF Annual Report: Is in production and the mailing date to all members and supporters is scheduled for the beginning of July. If you would like extra copies to share with others who might be interested in the mission of MHHF, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org

All active members who volunteer in any way at our clinics are encouraged to attend.
New Mentor Orientation, Wednesday, August 15th, Brewbakers in Belton. Do you know someone who’d be a great mentor, instructor or clinic volunteer? This event is a terrific opportunity to learn about our clinics and what we do. Please put this on your calendar and bring someone to this orientation. The folks who join will be our ‘new people’ for the fall Clinics.
We are looking for a dedicated individual who can help organize our Annual Sporting Clays Benefit, Shoot for the Future. Do you have a knack for detail, relationship building and organizing a fund raiser, or know someone who does? If so, please contact President-Elect, Stacie Hubler at email@example.com.
I know I speak on behalf of the entire MHHF Board when I say, thank you for all that you do! It is through your support of both time and money that MHHF is able to continue to introduce youth to Missouri’s outdoor way of life.
Have a great holiday weekend,
