This letter was received from State Rep. Jethro Pease:
Maine Sporting Dogs Association,
I wish to thank you for allowing me to speak at your Albion meeting on February 17th 2013. A fine snowy day, just what Maine Outdoors people relish
Once again, Thank You for granting me life membership in your organization. I have already spoken with pride calling myself a member.
More importantly, it is imperative for you to gain a voice in the "Halls" of Augusta. All too often the anti's whether they be against hunting, dog sports, or guns in general show up to get the Legislators ear. As sporting groups we must focus on land owner relationships, and positive image of the traditional sports we enjoy.
As I stated before you are welcome to contact me any time to begin the process of "educating Augusta"
~This just shows what a wonderful group of people the MSDA has for members and we are glad to add Mr. Pease to the list!~
Check it out!
