Governor Jim Douglas (R) and the Vermont Legislature have declared Friday, September 23, 2005 "Hunter Appreciation Day." To commemorate this special occasion there will be a ceremony held in the Cedar Creek Room of the Vermont State House at 10:00 a.m. Governor Douglas, legislative leaders, NRA-ILA representatives, and other special guests will honor the contributions that generations of hunters have made to the State of Vermont.
The United States Postal Service has commissioned a special stamp cancellation to celebrate "Hunter Appreciation Day" which will look great when placed on a one-of-a-kind postcard available through the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs.
