Brandy Kalgren youth gun winner PF banquet 9-13-08 William Thompson youth gun winner PF banquet 9-13-08
These two lucky kids, William Thompson and Brandy Kalgren, each won a Remington 870 at this year's Pheasant Forever Chapter 630 Banquet held on September 13, 2008. Over 15 guns where raffled and auctioned along with numerous prints, original art, furniture, hunting and fishing gear as well as other prizes. Two people received a framed print of the year and a chance in the Pheasants Forever national lottery for a televised bird hunt in the mid-west. The four bird hunts were in high demand during the live auction.
The Red Fern in St. Marys was the location for the 120 person banquet where we raised over $5500 for local habitat work for animals. Thank you to everyone to came to support this event.
A MS PowerPoint highlighted the local chapter's habitat work, equipment purchases, donations, PA Game Commission land acquisition, and the success of the annual youth hunt.
