For years now the Rhode Island Fish
and Game Protective Association holds fund raisers prior to Thanksgiving and
Christmas. The fundraiser before Thanksgiving raises money to benefit the
West Greenwich Public Library. The funds raised provide for new books,
items for “Story Time” and Reading Classes, as well as providing
funds for the always necessary building maintenance.
Homeowners can relate to the latter.
The Christmas fundraising goes to the Town of West Greenwich. West
Greenwich then uses the donation to purchase gift baskets for the residents in
need. This donation is a separate donation above and beyond the Troop
Thanksgiving baskets that RIFGPA donates as well. The Town of West
Greenwich purchases Christmas food items as well as gifts to place in the
baskets for the folks in town that can use the help.
RIFGPA has a Junior Membership
program where children under the age of 18 are encouraged with the help of a
club sponsor to join. Children are taught the aspects of Hunting, Fishing,
the Second Amendment, Conservation and other Environmental Sciences. The child’s
age often determines what parts of the club the youngster gets involved
RIFGPA is very fortunate to have Lyndsay Lombari, daughter of Michael and Diane Lombari involved. Lyndsay is the group’s most junior member. One of Lyndsay’s functions is to serve as “Ambassador of Goodwill”.
Lyndsay can be seen here donating the November fundraising check to the Town of West Greenwich Louttit Library. With Lyndsay holding such an honorable position at RIFGPA, we have high hopes for the future.
