To the Editor:
The Carroll County Doublebeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) would like to thank the businesses and individuals who helped make our recent 2014 fundraising banquet a success. Since 1973, the National Wild Turkey Federation has become one of the leading national wildlife habitat conservation organizations in North America. NWTF volunteers, staff and partners have worked to restore wild turkey populations to historic highs, created hunting opportunities for millions of people and conserved more than 17 million acres of essential habitat for hundreds of wildlife species. Local individuals, businesses and volunteers make it possible for future generations to embrace the love of hunting, the outdoors and preserve wildlife for years to come.

The Carroll County NWTF Chapter thanks the Carroll County community for its support for the past 14 years. Our chapter strives each year to give back to our community through scholarships and locally sponsored events.

At this year’s banquet, the chapter awarded two scholarships to local high school seniors to assist them in their future endeavors. Winners were Adam Warner, a senior at Carrollton High School, and Daniel Fuller, a senior at Tuscarawas Central Catholic. Fuller’s scholarship was given in memory of Darlene Shockey, who was a volunteer with the NWTF banquet in the past.

Thanks again to all the local businesses and individuals who were donors and sponsors for the event by donating merchandise, money or services to assist us. Your support of the NWTF will help fulfill its initiative: Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.

Mark Oboy
