      You have the opportunity to earn The President's Volunteer Service Award!  The Maryland Open Horse Show Series is doing something unique by pairing an awesome show experience with an opportunity to get involved in volunteer service!  We will provide that option through a series of Charity Projects taking place during our monthly shows, starting with the April show.  There are options to get involved and volunteer outside of the show ring.  We will also track your service work in other areas (school, clubs, place of worship, etc.)  with your volunteer work with MOHSS.  You must be a MOHSS member and/or volunteer to qualify to work toward the Award.  MOHSS does not guarantee you will earn this award.  You must meet the qualifications of The President's Volunteer Service Award for your age group and your hours must be well documented and reviewed by Board Member, Lisa Albrecht, who can certify, track your work, order and present the awards.
