Chapter’s 38th Annual Banquet set for April 23

  The Oconto River Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited is sponsoring its annual conservation fund-raising banquet on April 23rd at Romy’s Holiday Inn at Kelly Lake. Many prizes and surprise will be available which include fishing and hunting gear, outdoor gear, household and yard items suitable for both men, women and youth. Please take note of the benefits in Sponsorship Program. Sponsorships include dinner tickets and an opportunity to win $500 cash prize in the Sponsor Cash raffle drawing.

  Funds raised from banquet allows the Chapter to provide financial assistance to DNR for hiring Summer Limited Time Employees to work on cold water habitat projects on Oconto River Watershed and other streams in TU Northeast region. Chapter funds also provide the operation of Trout in Classroom at Gillett, Lena, Oconto, Oconto Falls, Suring, Pulaski, Marion, Menominee Nation and White Lake school districts. The Chapter supplies sufficient money to send several youths to attend weeklong and day camps at Central Wisconsin Environmental Station and organize youth trout fishing events. Additional financial assistance goes for the operation of Northern Oconto County Trout Alliance fish hatchery and Chapter program of stocking trout in main Oconto River. Banquet Flyers will be mailed by mid-March.
