Chisago County Pheasants Forever banquet set for Feb. 23

The 28th Anniversary Chisago County Pheasants Forever Banquet will again be held at Lent Town Hall near Stacy Saturday, Feb. 23. The Chisago County chapter was one of the early chapters chartered in the now national organization.

The banquet begins with a social hour at 4 p.m., followed by dinner and the program at 5:30 p.m.

“It has remained a very popular event in recent years despite the in-the-dumps economy,” Tim Kane, chapter president, said. “It’s a chance to visit with friends and acquaintances and a good chance to win some of the top-drawer prizes we offer, including more than a dozen high quality guns.”

For potential newcomers, Kane reminded this is a family-oriented banquet, which draws a lot of women and kids as well as the traditional male hunter. All kids attending will be assured of getting a prize.

Purchase tickets in advance so the chapter can know how much food to order, and because only 300 tickets will be available, Kane said. Tickets can be purchased from any chapter member, at AmericInn North Branch, Chisago Hardware in Chisago City, Lindstrom Liquor Municipal, or purchase online at

Pheasants Forever is primarily about providing habitat for pheasants and other wildlife. There are about 80 chapters with about 24,000 members in Minnesota.
