Eleven thousand Ducks Unlimited volunteers couldn’t be wrong. That’s how many attended last year’s first-ever DU Volunteer Celebration Day events at approximately 90 locations throughout the nation. This year’s celebration, which promises to be even bigger and better, is scheduled for August 4, 2007.
Anheuser-Busch headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, will host the central event for Volunteer Celebration Day. Budweiser is a Proud Sponsor of Ducks Unlimited and supports the organization’s work and its volunteers throughout the country. See the Flyway section of your Ducks Unlimited magazine for a list of host cities in your area.
In addition to a number of extraordinary prizes, including a Yamaha ATV and a War Eagle boat, last year’s outing was highlighted by a live Web cast that featured DU officers and volunteers. This year’s events will include special shirts, local raffles and voting to choose the official volunteer cap for 2008. For additional information, contact your DU Regional Director. Check your July/August Ducks Unlimited magazine for additional details regarding specific Volunteer Appreciation Day sites.
