York News-Times :: Rebirth begins :: York, Nebraska Regains A DU Chapter

York News-Times > Archives > Sports > Rebirth begins.

Ducks Unlimited chapters are precious, precarious things. Even age old chapters can disappear if they fail to gain and retain volunteers.  York, Nebraska had a chapter that could have celebrated 40 years of protecting wetland habitat this year.  Unfortunately, their chapter folded due to a lack of volunteer support. Their last banquet was in 2006.

But all is not lost for York, Nebraska.  They are forming a new chapter and are planning a fund raising banquet.  The new group is looking forward to a rebirth.

The story does have a happy ending, but think of it as a cautionary tale.  Your local Ducks Unlimited chapter is only as strong as its volunteers.  New volunteers must be brought into every chapter and existing volunteers need to be retained.  No one is unnecessary.

Please, find a local chapter and volunteer today.  You are needed.
