Creston Ducks volunteer recognized for decade of service

Web Lead

At the annual fundraising banquet in October, the Creston chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada celebrated Les Stevenson’s 10th year as an active member of the banquet committee. In addition to being an energetic solicitor of sponsors and donors, he also helped to organize and run the silent and live auctions.

Stevenson pioneered the introduction of making birdhouses to the schoolchildren of the valley. Over the past seven years, he has given classes on making birdhouses in the schools, which began with the Adam Robertson Elementary School Grade 4 class. There are hundreds of bird houses in the valley that have been made by children through his efforts, as well as imparting their awareness of the marvelous Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area.

The banquet was attended by 219, and netted $25,140, the second highest net ever. The auctions went very well, and contributed to a highly charged atmosphere for the evening. The committee extends its appreciation to the generous sponsors and donors, as well as the enthusiastic bidders, for making this such a successful year in a harsh economy.
