The banquet will begin at 4pm with the Annual Membership Meeting followed by a reception with light Hors D’oeuvres beginning at 4:30pm, the Jason Jewett Memorial Youth Lifetime License Ceremony at 5pm, a buffet dinner with all the fixings and the IFW Lifetime Achievement Award Ceremony at 6pm, followed by the live and silent auction at 7pm.

We are beginning to collect items from very supportive businesses, organizations and SAM Members from around the state such as: Cabela’s, Penobscot County Conservation Association, Kittery Trading Post, Maine Guide Snowshoe Furniture, Mike Chase, Bill Forbes, Ernie Drost, and many, many more. We hope we can add your name to the list of donors to help make our event a huge success.
