Banquet For Habitat Organization Previewed During Chamber Coffee



WAYNE – Two weeks from Friday, March 2 will mark the 28th annual Logan Creek Pheasants Forever Banquet as the event was previewed from the City Auditorium’s north meeting room.

Logan Creek Chapter was the host for Friday morning Chamber coffee put on by Wayne Area Economic Development.

Jim Modrell has been President of the Logan Creek Chapter Pheasants Forever for the past eight years. He said one of the big things the group is turning towards now is habitat education when they hosted their second year in a row of a Pollinator event for Wayne Elementary fifth graders.

“People don’t realize how much of our food is cross-pollinated by theses animals,” said Modrell. “And these little bugs out there that if we lose these pollinators we’re going to be in big trouble with our food supply chain.”

For the second year, Logan Creek Pheasants Forever partnered with the Isaac Walton League to sponsor a family fun day. The day is filled with outdoor and wildlife related events. New for this year, the group will be working with the Wayne High FFA program to introduce students to the idea of integrating habitat considerations with farming practices.

The banquet will be catered with a steak supper, or a seafood option with a cash bar. Cost is $50 for a membership and meal, $15 for a spouse and $15 for a ringneck (children 16 and under) Meal prices will increase $5 on the day of the banquet, so make sure to purchase tickets early.
