December Updates

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to send out a reminder to you about the events happening this month.

On Saturday December 12th the HRFG Annual Christmas Party showing appreciation over the past year to all our volunteers and members. It will be held at the Culture Centre in High River. The location is 251 – 9 Ave SW High River (across the street just east of the Hospital). The party will start at 7:30pm. Please bring a potluck item. All beverages will be supplied by the HRFG. We are also asking to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the High River Food Bank as well.

Don’t forget that this Saturday night we will be drawing our Christmas Cheer draw as well. If you haven’t purchased any tickets, there will be some on sale the night of the party. If you want to get some tickets to sell, please send us a message on Facebook or email hrfishandgame@hotmail.com.

There will be no scheduled Christmas Tree Hunt this year. Over the last few years, the interest in cutting down Christmas trees by our members has reduced drastically. If you are interested in going out on your own and want to purchase a Christmas tree permit, you can do so in person at a local Fish and Wildlife Office, or by going online and purchasing directly http://esrd.alberta.ca/forms-maps-services/tree-cutting-permits/christmas-tree-cutting.aspx.
A reminder to those that received Awards Trophies last year, please contact Tony Ewanishin at sewan@telus.net to get those back to him ASAP. We will need to get them back before the Antler Measuring (Date TBD) to make sure that we will have them back in time for the banquet, scheduled for March 19, 2016.

For anyone who has suggestions on items that they would like to see in the silent and live auctions at the banquet, the HRFG is seeking members and their friends for some feedback. Please send us an email at hrfishandgame@hotmail.com with any suggestions you may have. We will take all suggestions into consideration, but there are no guarantees that these items will be available. Tickets are on sale for the banquet, if you are interested in tickets, please email us at hrfishandgame@hotmail.com or contact one of our executive members.

Hope to see you all next weekend!

HRFG Updates – September 2014

Hello Everyone,

An email went out to the email list a short while ago. If you received that email, it is because you responded to the original email that was sent out back in July 2014 stating your interest to still receive our emails and updates. Thank you to those that responded to that email. If you know of someone that did not respond, or are not getting these email updates, it is because we did not get their response as of yet.

I just want to update you that our next scheduled meeting is going to be held Wednesday October 8th, 2014 at 7:45pm and will be held at the Foothills AIM Society Building.

We will be discussing executive positions (current and vacancies), upcoming Fall and Winter events, 2015 Annual Banquet, etc.

Hope to see you all there!
