Please send in your nominations for MHCO Perpetual Awards by October 1, 2017



Hi MHCO Members,

Have you been keeping an eye on your fellow MHCO members?

This is a reminder to send in your nominations for candidates for the MHCO Members' Choice Perpetual Awards: Sportsmanship, Fellowship , Horsemanship and MHCO People's Choice Award . Hopefully you have been watching your fellow MHCO members at Socials, Shows, and Meetings ... any event where MHCO members are together.

These are members whom you observe going out of their way to do those little "extras" for the club and their fellow members. They are members who enhance the MHCO by their actions and attitudes which set examples for other MHCO members. They are members who you would like to see recognized for their efforts in the club.

For examples of past awards presented, please go to the MHCO website www.mhco.ca under the SHOWS - MHCO Point Shows - YEAR END AWARDS link. 

Any member can submit their vote for another member, but not for oneself or a family member, and you must have a membership to vote.  An explanation is optional but not necessary as to why you feel this person deserves the award. Please send your nomination and for which award you want considered to the MHCO Awards Committee - Mary McKibbon c/o mary.mckibbon@outlook.com by OCTOBER 1 of this year.  

All awards will be presented at the annual MHCO Awards banquet (October 29 th).
