At the meeting Sam Butt was awarded a LIFE MEMBERSHIP. Sam has been a tremendous asset to the UHRGA and served as a board member for many years. Although not entirely sure, it was indicated that his involvement with this association goes back some 29 years. Apart from volunteering at our functions and youth events, and whatever else is on the go, Sam has been there. He has been taken care of our maintenance and up keep, often without assistance and working tirelessly to get the job done. It is always a pleasure working with Sam.

Congratulations Sam !


Status and Criteria for the Award

The title of “Life Member” and the status of “Life Membership” shall be awarded to a long-standing member of the Association who has:

· documented meritorious service to the Association over a period of at least 10 years


· served at least five consecutive or spaced terms as an Officer or Board member


· documented distinguished service to the Association.




Kenny White, Chairman of Delta Waterfowl's Humber Valley Chapter was awarded an Honorary Membership of our association. The conservation and advocacy group has been helping us and so many other groups in promoting their objectives. Since being introduced in our local area, Delta Waterfowl has assisted us in many forms with our

youth skills programs and in the promotion of outdoor activities and conservation efforts. Getting youth interested and involved at a young age is a big part of them participating in the greater outdoors later on in life. We have a great respect and gratitude for Kenny and Delta Waterfowl. Support them when you can.

Thank you Kenny, Well Deserved Sir !
