Letter: Eric Morken was the voice for local conservation efforts
On behalf of the Viking Sportsmen, Douglas County Pheasants Forever, and Youth Outdoor Activity Day, thank you!
To the editor:
As non-profit organizations there are numerous challenges including how to get the message out about activities, events, and the positive impact your group has on the community in the most effective and financially efficient way possible.
Fortunately for Viking Sportsmen, Douglas County Pheasants Forever and Youth Outdoor Activity Day, we have had a steadfast ally in Eric Morken at the Echo Press. On top of covering local sporting events Eric made it his mission to be the voice for local conservation efforts. From writing articles covering banquets, the passing of key figures, the need for volunteers, and every event in between. His articles reveal his passion and engage enthusiasts and novices alike as he provided a look into the activity, event, or took them on his latest hunting adventure or challenge faced in the great outdoors.
In part, because of Eric’s coverage, our events have been a success allowing us to positively impact member of our local community, specifically youth. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Eric Morken for his service to our community and wish him the best of luck on his next chapter. On behalf of the Viking Sportsmen, Douglas County Pheasants Forever, and Youth Outdoor Activity Day, thank you!
