Ringed-neck Pheasant on Manchaug Pond

Our recent fundraiser, the Patriots Ticket Raffle, not only brought in needed funds for our effort to preserve our water level, but also great excitement for those buying and selling tickets as well as the winner and his guests!

4 tickets were presented to the holder of winning ticket # 200 (the last ticket printed!)

Thank you to all who participated and to the Patriots for winning this game!
