Silent Auction

A silent auction will be held during the annual meeting. This is a fun way to support MDHTA activities during the year. Support and fun can be found in bringing a small item as well as purchasing. In 2023 the Silent Auction brought in $870 that was used to help match grants MDHTA received from the RTP Coal Creek loop trail on the MDHT.

MDHTA merchandise will be on sale at reduced prices along with a few remaining Forest Service signs.

We hope to see you at the MDHTA Annual Meeting!
