It has been a very trying 4 years since the first 50 charter members of MSIHC Chapter 44 signed their applications on Aug. 4, 2018, at our organizational meeting. After our first year, at our State show in Jackson, MS, we had 217 members. Interesting fact: this was the 50th anniversary of Hurricane Camille.
Without the dedication from these Members, we would not be where we are now: a strong and growing Chapter representing IH collectors from several states and Canada. On that note, I would like to thank the following members for their hard work and perseverance: Secretary: Renee Britt MSIHCC #503 Treasurer: Cody Britt MSIHCC #504 Membership Coordinator/Treasurer: Jeff Smith MSIHCC #509 Thanks for your help in the past!
As you all know, on March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, stopping all activities, fellowships & gatherings. As we begin to recover from this unprecedented event, we encourage everyone to visit engine and tractor shows, as well as festivals! We are always accepting new members, so please encourage others to join MSIHCC 44 as members!
Thanks for all your membership support and we hope to see you at our next MSIHC Chapter show & meeting.

MS Chapter #44 ball caps are now available for $20.
They will be distributed at events,
as shipping would be time consuming and incur additional costs.
Be sure to check out the band. IHC MS 44 website is shown on the back.
So if anyone asks where you got your cap, you can show them
where they can go to get more information on how to get one!
Patches are also available. They are $5.00 each.
These can be sewn or ironed on.
Size is approximately 3.5" X 4.25".
