Treasurer:  Janet Roberge
Janet is he co-owner of Gord's Corner Store in West Milan.  She has not had the time to take up ATV riding but when a new trail was established by her store in 2015, she immediately had a lot of contact with the ATV community and she realized the importance of this industry to the area.  Her finance background was a perfect fit for the club and she has done an outstanding job in taking care of the club's books.

Lauren is an ATV rider who along with her husband and two kids have a camp in Milan on Cedar Pond.  Lauren is an office manager with great organizational and computer skills.  She has been instrumental in getting the new online membership program up and running and does a great job organizing the club's paperwork.

Trail Master:  Larry Gomes
Larry has been a snowmobile rider since the mid-1980's has been heavily involved in trail development in the Groveton, Stark, Milan and Berlin area since 1998.  When the Milan Trail Huggers club formed in 2014, Larry was solicited to become trail master for the club because of his past trail experience and landowner contacts.  Larry has a John Deere tractor that is the main equipment being used to maintain the club's in-the-woods trails.  Larry and his wife Kate own a vacation home in Stark and he rides a 2000 Arctic Cat 400 mainly for trail work.  But they are planning to retire in the next couple of years and will purchase a new side-by-side machine at that time for recreational ATV trail riding.
