This group has formed a committee to advise the board on rebranding strategies to attract new and young hunters into the chapter. Plans will include recruiting, using social media, and developing mentors in our membership to advise these new hunters. We also seek input and advice to increase participation in our fundraisers and member meetings. Any member with ideas to help us with this can email me at email@example.com or call 925.989.1634.
The wife of our past esteemed board member, Kevin Wong, Kristin Wong, has asked me to advertise two Antler replica chandeliers that she has for sale from Kevin’s extensive collection.
Please see the end of the newsletter for information on these.
Hunting season is here, and I hope to hear from our members about their successes. Please email me with pictures and stories of your epic hunt.
