The Delaware County Pheasants Forever Banquet is Saturday night. This is a big fundraiser for the local Pheasants Forever, who use the money to give back in the community. Chris Heiar says their mission is mostly wildlife habitat and youth in the outdoors.
Some of the money raised also goes towards scholarships. Member Bob Murphy says conservation awards are also presented at the Pheasants Forever Banquet, and they’ll have an auction with lots of great items up for grabs.
A 20-person barbeque dinner will also be on the auction, along with a couple fishing trips and a youth turkey hunt. The Delaware County Pheasants Forever Banquet will be held Saturday night at the Delaware County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Manchester starting at 6 o’clock. Tickets are still available by calling Wayne Wessels at 927-5006 or Tony Helmrichs at 920-4590.
