Ducks Unlimited banquet Saturday

The resurrected Ducks Unlimited North Island Chapter will be hosting its first annual banquet

The resurrected Ducks Unlimited North Island Chapter will be hosting its first annual banquet and fund-raising auction at the Port Hardy Civic Centre Feb. 28.

According to Chair Nita Klatt, Ducks Unlimited used to have a chapter in the area, “but they shut down 15 years ago.”

Klatt and her husband Jim Henschke travelled to Courtenay to attend the banquets there and were asked if they would like to start the program back up in the North Island, which they agreed to do.

“I believe in the cause. They do a lot of work in the North Island,” Klatt said.

The banquet begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, viewing of auction items, raffle ticket sales and a silent auction. After dinner there will be door prizes, a live auction and raffle draws.

Tickets for the event are $50 and limited seating is available.

For more information please call Nita Klatt at 250-902-7145.

Klatt said the banquet will be held in Port McNeill next year.

Ducks Unlimited (DU) is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of wetlands and associated upland habitats for waterfowl, other wildlife, and people.
