Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the banquet on Saturday evening. Also thank you to those who supported us by purchasing raffle tickets or volunteering and especially to the donors who make it all possible.

We had fewer attendees this year compared to last, just like all the other banquets in the country. It will be nice when the economy turns around and people are fully employed once again. Although the numbers were down, everyone did their part and we were able to meet or financial goals for the evening.

We are looking forward to providing funding for worthwhile wildlife and habitat programs as well as educational programs such as Becoming an Outdoor Woman, National Archery in the Schools and youth days in Alaska. It's all possible due to the generosity of those that support RMEF.

Thank you very much and we look forward to doing it again next fall.
