Fall Membership Letter -- don't let your membership lapse!


MUSEUM OF HOUNDS AND HUNTING NORTH AMERICA INC.
FALL LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN

What an unexpected and unprecedented year 2020 has turned out to be! While many restrictions on our lives are interfering with our families, work, etc., riding in the great outdoors, equestrian sports, and importantly, riding to hounds are still possibilities for many.
The Museum’s spring events that included the Induction Ceremony to the Huntsmen’s Room, the Sam Savitt Art Exhibition, the Bronze Sculptors Exhibit and Sale, and the Annual Art Sale, are all postponed until May 2021.
The Museum’s board and committee are working to expedite updating our wonderful website at MHHNA.ORG and are currently adding new content under the NEWS heading. If there is real membership interest and participation, we hope to fund a complete update to this old engine, thereby facilitating publication of new articles, news and photos. BUT, we need you and are looking for your ‘clicks’ on our site to know you are with us and reading NEWS. More financial support from the membership is vital for this project. THE PLACE TO BE is with your MUSEUM, so go to our site at MHHNA.ORG or Museum of Hounds and Hunting and visit the topics often!
Thank you all for renewing your memberships this year. Thank you to donors who have been so supportive of the Museum. We will endeavor to bring you both newsworthy and educational content, but let’s have fun as well. Photos and articles of interest and are welcomed! We would love to hear your suggestions and input for the site.
Please submit to: MHHNA, 2598 Five Points Rd., Marshall, VA 20115 or
email [email protected] Museum Phone 540-717- 1228 Nancy at 540-454-1257
Stay tuned. Soon you will be able to renew memberships and donate online directly from the MHHNA website.

Onward and upward Museum friends; let me hear from you with your clicks and visits to
MHHNA.ORG!

In 1997, the Museum of Hounds & Hunting North America dedicated a room to honor all huntsmen for their immense contributions to the sport, from its earliest days to the present. Testimony abounds to the respect huntsmen have earned among their peers. One can look through the names that follow to reaffirm the lofty position of such men as Charlie Carver; Elias Chadwell; Mason Houghland, MFH; William Woodward and others, who have been honored by inclusion in the Huntsmen’s Room. By such honor, they reflect the same upon all those who by their skill with hounds, their courage across country and their unselfish and complete dedication to the sport have earned the title of “huntsman.” We are pleased to report that 2020 will see a new class of inductees! Additional information will be released soon!!
Happy Thanksgiving and here's to a great season!!
