Guys, I could really use your help here. I had that privilege of being nominated for the Delta Waterfowl Volunteer of the Year Award and made it to the Final 7. I have to admit that while it is an honor, at first I was a little concerned about the nomination, because I am just one of about 15 on our NEI Committee who volunteers and works hard to pull off extremely successful banquets, the largest youth program in all of Delta Waterfowl, Veterans projects, habitat projects, and other local causes. The entire committee is what makes it "click". So, I ask for your vote for me (Derek Craig) ... not for me personally ... but for voting for me is to vote for the entire Northeast Indiana Chapter of Delta Waterfowl Committee, the volunteers, and our membership. It is a team effort and the award will be acknowledged as a team award, should I be fortunate to "win".
You may vote as many times as you like through August 4th. I thank you for your support. Please vote "Derek Craig".http://www.deltawaterfowl.org/volunteeraward/
