The Squan-A-Tissit Chapter will be holding its Annual Fundraiser Dinner from 5pm to 9pm at The VFW Post 3219 in Pepperell MA.

Please join us for a fun filled night with a home cooked spaghetti dinner, bucket raffles, auctions, door prizes, and guest speaker Dan Szczesny .

This event is the chapters sole fundraising source that supports the conservation efforts in conserving, protecting, and restoring the Nissitissit and Squannacook rivers and their tributaries. The chapter has several new projects planned for 2019. We can not succeed without your support!

The chapter is in need of donations that can be used in the raffles and auctions. Donations need not be fishing related and will be greatly appreciated!

Please contact the chapter at chapter@squanatissit.org

Thank you for your support!


About our quest speaker

 

Two really bad ideas…

Clean water and healthy fisheries are under threat like never before.

But with great threat, comes great opportunity: This is yours.

Act today and be the voice that protected water for this generation and the next.

Bristol Bay, Alaska

Threat:

Pebble Mine, a massive open pit mine at the headwaters of Bristol Bay.

What’s at stake: 

  • The health of the world’s largest sockeye salmon run
  • A $1.5 billion combined Bristol Bay fishery
  • 14,000 jobs supported by the Bristol Bay salmon fishery

Clean Water Rule

Threat:

A proposal to significantly reduce protections for headwater streams.

What’s at stake:

  • Protections for hundreds of thousands of miles of stream.
  • Drinking water for one-in-three Americans
  • An $887 billion outdoor recreation economy
