Partnerships Are What Gets Things Done

Those are the words of Secretary of State, Randy Daniels, when he spoke on August 13 of the new wildlife area at Point Lookout. He presented to Supervisor Kate Murray of Hempstead, the rights to the 50 acre plot. It was New York State property that was turned over to the Town of Hempstead for a wildlife observation area.


The officers of the SSWA were invited to attend the event. They wanted to recognize our club for the effort we are putting into the project. The SSWA is partnering with the Department of Conservation and Waterways to help get the project under way.
On Sunday, August 17, ten volunteers spent the whole morning cleaning up debris from the marsh. We collected approximately a 40-yard dumpster of wood and garbage from the marsh.
This was the first of many clean-ups we will be involved with. We hope our club will get some recognition as a group dedicated to the lands and waters. We are not a group that only takes from the land, but puts back through its volunteer work. We are trying to become stewards of this site and keep up with restoration of this piece of property.
I will keep everyone informed of our next clean-up so we can all help out. The key to this work is "Partnerships."

What a Great Shoot

What a great time we had at the Peconic River Sportsman's Club. It was a little confusing in the beginning, but once we got underway, things went fine.
Afterwards we had lunch and the officers and members presented Bill Hartman with a print we got him for a job well done as President.
We hope to do it again. I'll keep you informed.
