Dr. Gilbert Rogers Receives MFHA New England District Conservation Award

Through the efforts of Dr. Gilbert Rodgers of Medfield, Massachusetts, the use of the former Medfield State Hospital property by the Norfolk Hunt Club has been retained in perpetuity and that right is enshrined in the law. It was a privilege to recognize Dr. Rogers at the New England Hunts Hound Show—an individual whose efforts reflect the best of the traditions of foxhunting and the preservation of open land for current and future generations.
