The annual banquet for Albany DU is Saturday, December 8th at the Linn County Fairgrounds. The dinner features a raffle and an auction with the proceeds benefiting wetlands, waterfowl and the myriad of other wildlife associated with wetlands. Each year I donate artwork to the auction and this year I have donated "Spring Drake"(above). However, the national package print "First Flight"(right) will also be available and possibly an original piece of art as well. Doors open at 5:00pm with a no-host bar. Dinner is at 6:30pm catered by Burton's with the live auction to follow.
