LABRADOR CITY, N.L.
NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR
The new chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada in Labrador West is up and running.
In a meeting on Aug. 15, the community was brought up to date on what’s been happening since the Chapter was formed earlier this year.
A bank account is being created, and funding is in place for the duck nest boxes. These boxes will be built by local young people, who will also help set them in appropriate locations in the area to encourage ducks to nest.
The group also has funding to buy signage to place around town, promoting Ducks Unlimited Canada and its initiatives.
The Labrador West chapter also has plans for its first Ducks Unlimited auction and dinner. The event is planned for on March 29, 2019, at the Labrador City Legion.
More details regarding tickets and auction items will be revealed as the date of the auction gets closer.
Executive members of the local chapter say it will be a great opportunity to enjoy a good meal, bid on some cool items, and spend an evening socializing with local people who share a similar vision for the great outdoors.
