The Central Delaware Ducks Unlimited Annual Fall Dinner will be held on November 5 at the Carlisle Fire House. With a dinner prepared by Georgia House the evening’s activities will also include a live and silent auction, raffles and games.
Ducks Unlimited is a grassroots, volunteer-based organization, that began in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when the waterfowl populations decreased to unseen lows across North America. A small group of sportsmen and conservationists joined together to form Ducks Unlimited with the shared mission of habitat conservation.
Ducks Unlimited’s Delaware conservation program have restored, enhanced and conserved over 1,588 acres of wetlands and adjacent habitat while completing 21 projects over the past several years, according to the national organization. With four events taking place each year, the Lame Duck Shoot at Owens Station in February, the Sponsors Dinner at Tall Pines Hunt Club in April, the Crab Feast at the Carlisle Fire House in August and the Fall Dinner, Delaware Duck’s Unlimited finished 2nd in revenue among all Duck’s Unlimited chapters in the United States.
“We always have a great time at these events,” commented Garrett Grier, local advocate for Duck’s Unlimited of Delaware. “The atmosphere is great and as always there are some great live and silent auction items.”
The Fall Dinner is $50 for individuals which includes dinner and an open bar. Oysters and cocktails begin at 5:30pm with dinner being served at 6:30pm.
