PA Volunteers Win Top Awards at NWTF Convention
EDGEFIELD, S.C The Pennsylvania State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation received two L.A. Dixon Memorial Chapter Awards during the NWTF's 34th annual National Convention and Sport Show, which was sponsored by Midway USA, in Nashville, Tenn.
The Pennsylvania State Chapter was recognized by the NWTF for winning third place in the Highest Total Net/Net Dollars Raised and More Than 20,000 Members categories. The chapter has been a leader in the NWTF's chapter system, and a credit to the NWTF.
The L.A. Dixon Memorial awards are given in honor of a man who gave unselfishly during the NWTF's early years. Dixon founded the NWTF's North Carolina State Chapter, served at the national, state and local levels and traveled thousands of miles at his own expense carrying the NWTF's message to all who would listen. The NWTF honors Dixon's achievements through the L.A. Dixon Memorial Chapter Awards.
"The NWTF's volunteers and chapters make the Federation' conservation and outreach work possible," said George Thornton, NWTF CEO. "We're proud to present our chapters with the L.A. Dixon Awards to honor their excellent performances and unrivaled dedication."
