DU honorees

The Rockport-Fulton Chapter of Ducks Unlimited (DU) held its 42nd annual Banquet Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Fulton Convention Center - Paws & Taws.  The committee normally prepares and fundraises for this event for eight months, but this year, due to COVID-19, they only had eight weeks to prepare, following the protocols put in place by Gov. Greg Abbott.  The event sold out quickly and was a record-breaking success for the local DU Chapter, bringing in more than $123,000 the night of the event with live and silent auctions, as well as numerous raffles. DU Committee Co-chairmen, Tammy Redden and Danny Adams II presented the Friends of the Ducks award to San Jose Cattle Company, represented by Ranch Manager Wade Ruddock (pictured). Redden was awarded 2020 Sportsman of the Year, presented by Adams.
