Years ago when the venerable Virginia O'Brien was at the helm of the Saratoga Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame the Monticello- Goshen Chapter USHWA donated annually to that organization.

Just recently, upon a request from chapter member Kelly Young, the Monticello-Goshen Chapter USHWA donated $500 to Saratoga Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame.

Ms. Young was a longtime member of the now defunct Saratoga Chapter USHWA and when that organization folded she joined the Monticello Goshen Chapter, and as an officer of the Saratoga Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame she knows that organization needs funds to subsist.

And at the recent Mon-Go Chapter USHWA meeting she brought her request to the Board and received a positive response for the donation.

Additionally, on July 6, Mon-Go will again make its annual $3,000 annual donation to the National Harness Racing Museum in Goshen, NY at the Hall of Fame Banquet that evening.

Again, after running a successful Awards Banquet last fall in late November the Chapter also donated $3000 to Historic Track at their monthly Board Meeting in December.

The donations are made possible from continued support of industry people and organizations who place ads in the chapter's charity journal.

"We are very fortunate to be able to raise money and when we do it is our pleasure to donate the profits back to the industry; especially to the Hall of Fame and Historic Track, which are in our own back yard," noted Monticello-Goshen Chapter USHWA president, Chris Tully.
