December 2018
Happy Friday!

Last newsletter of the year! And last work day at AMHA for the year! This has been such a busy month, but one that has been lots of fun, giving many of our members the great news that are an AMHA awardee for 2018. Those calls were fun!

So we are ending the year with the 2018 AMHA Award winners, Open Competition Winners, USDF ribbon winners, and our newest program, the 2018 Star Award winners! This is greatly deserved by all these honorees! See all the winners below.

In case you missed it earlier this week, I sent the year-end paperwork. Because the Convention is almost two weeks earlier than usual this year, I have to be a stickler and keep the January 15 deadline for all club awards this year. Sorry about that!

1. Club Renewal Application
2. 2019 Breed Promotional Grant
3. Year-End Club Award Nomination Forms

Happy New Year
