Fraternity Banquet Dinner - Cancellation Letter:

For over 40 years, the Fraternity of The Desert Bighorn, a non-profit, all volunteer organization, has been constructing and maintaining water development projects that will benefit and enhance the habitat of these magnificent animals, the Bighorn Sheep. These water projects not only help sustain sheep on the mountain ranges of Nevada, they also serve many other mammals, birds, reptiles and even bees. During the hot summer months and drought periods these water projects become life saving oases.

The Fraternity is deeply saddened and very sorry to announce the CANCELLATION of our annual BANQUET. It was decided that any profit from a banquet this year might not be enough to cover the cost, and that the time and money saved would be better used for wildlife projects. We know how much everyone enjoys our annual banquets and that made this decision a very difficult one. Our hopes are for a better economy in the near future so that we can resume with our annual banquets. The Fraternity is, however, considering other ways to get together this year and maybe even raise a few $$ to help in our efforts for next years projects. Some ideas presented where; cocktail parties, BBQ and a shootout, just to name a few, other suggestions are welcome.

The Fraternities cancellation of the banquet this year doesn’t mean that we have enough money to do everything that we need to do for wildlife. We still need DONATIONS from our supporters. We are all aware of how bad the economy is right now, but any contribution is welcome. Don’t forget, it’s TAX DEDUCTABLE and besides, the sheep and other mammals, birds, reptiles and even the bees will really appreciate it

Thank you for all you do for WILDLIFE!
