In order to make any of this happen we need people like you to be more involved in club activities. We have so much to offer to you, to the community, and our youth... but we must have help in order to make it happen.

Our Executive and Board of Directors are mostly older folks as myself. We need new and younger people to become involved / to become more concerned and participate in our club activities. Some of our serving people have been here as Charter Members since the club was started back in 1983. Thats 37 years folks. Thats dedication ! Some among us have had family or themselves health issues and are experiencing difficulty in preforming formal club duties and wish to move forward and pass their duties to others. So, Ill put it out there to you again... Please consider your place as a member of our Association and put your name forward for the continued success of this recreational facility. We really do have so much to offer. It all happens with your support. If you cannot make this evening... Give me a call and let me put your name forward with the position you wish to apply for. 709 686 5228 leave a msg if I am not home.

The Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association is well admired and respected for our programs offered, our social events, Big Game Competition and recreational facilities. We are well respected within the community of Deer Lake and all surrounding areas and indeed throughout the entire province. We have much respect from the Provincial Government and Premier Dwight Ball himself at one of our functions, mentioned the importance and the significant contribution to the communities that the Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association offers. Many Federal and Provincial groups avail of our facilities. We are indeed a busy concern and need more help to make our work loads lighter.

Many of our local businesses are not only our friends, but also our sponsors. Show them your support by shopping locally.

Thank you for allowing me a few moments of your valued time. We have so much appreciation to everyone for availing their skills and services to you through this Association.

Wendell Smith

Pres., UHRGA

Deer Lake, NL
