FMHA Annual Banquet and Meeting

The Florida Morgan Horse Association (FMHA) held it's annual awards banquet and meeting on January 22, 2005, at the Ocala Hilton. The banquet was very well attended by many members of FMHA who traveled from all parts of Florida and Georgia to participate in the event. To make the evening even more special, AMHA Executive Director Fred Braden was in attendance and spoke about the future of AMHA and plans for 2005. He was very positive and is looking forward to a great year for the Morgan breed.

After appetizers, dinner and a sumptuous chocolate fountain dessert, the entire membership participated in a live auction to raise funds for the FMHA treasury. With the cancellation of the Summer's End show due to the hurricanes in Florida, this fundraiser was essential to the club. Special thanks go to the many generous donors and the enthusiastic crowd who stepped up to bid on the auction items. "Conkalina" aka Conky Price was a hit as she presented auction items in her lovely pink ballet costume. It was great fun and made the auction even more interesting. Glenn Winograd, with the help of several spotters, got top dollar for the auction items which will help ensure FMHA's ability to have a good year for its shows, events, sponsorships and other activities.

FMHA President Nina Spencer was thrilled with the turnout and participation. In addition to the auction, awards, and evening's speakers, Diane Tanquay was honored and thanked for her 10 years of service and time promoting youth, the Morgan breed and FMHA prior to her move back to the Northeast. As the club looks forward to a great and hurricane-free 2005, it was time to honor the diverse group of high point riders and drivers from 2004.
