The Meeker banquet, our largest fundraiser and most important revenue source, is delayed for 2021 due to COVID. In the spring we will mail out a membership renewal form and a raffle for some of top prizes typically offered at the banquet. The membership mailing has been mailed to all members who listed Meeker County as their home county. Please fill out the form and return in by May 28, 2021. If you did not get one, contact us and we will email or mail you a membership renewal form and raffle. If the COVID lockdowns cease by fall, we hope to be able to offer a September outdoor in-person gathering.
On a typical year, the evening's festivities include a live auction, silent auction, and a variety of raffles. Cocktails begin at 5:30 p.m., with dinner served at 7 p.m.
We thank all of our previous donors for their generous donations to help make this banquet a success. We also thank all of our members who showed up to donate to Meeker PF where all the dollars raised at our banquet stay with the local chapter to support local acquisitions, habitat projects, and youth education.

2016 Annual Banquet Highlights
The 2016 Banquet was another successful event with 200 attendees packing the Litchfield Eagles Club. This year we added even more trips to Minnesota hot spots like Lake of the Woods and Red Lake. All proceeds from the event stay within the Meeker Chapters control to use on habitat management, acquisition or youth events. One of the unique models of Pheasants Forever is that the money raised at the local banquets stays within the local chapters control.
