My name is Ryan Buchanan and I am a Freshman in highschool with some big goals.  I started a fishing derby over 2 years ago to raise money and awareness about saving the Loons.   The money raised will be shared between the Chocorua Lake Conservancy and the Loon Preservation Committee.  I have paid for all of the other supplies myself and have had generous donations from local businesses including the Scandanavian Bakery, Yankee Smokehouse, and Phantom Fireworks.  There have been so many unnecessary Loon deaths due to lead poisoning which can completely be avoided with education.  As with last year, there will be representative from the Loon Preservation Committee assisting with information and ways that you can save the loons.   This means so much to me because the Loons belong in the environment, their sounds are so beautiful, soulful and unique and they are such graceful majestic birds.  Could you please donate $10 or $20 or whatever you are able to contribute towards saving the Loons?  Every dollar counts.  On behalf of myself, the CLC, LPC, the Loons and environment as a whole, THANK  YOU!!
Event Date: July 2, 2016 11 AM to 2 PM
Location: Narrows Bridge, Chocorua, NH
Cost: $6 per child under 12 and $8 for each adult.

Thank you so much for the support. Every penny counts. If I could ask everyone to share on their FB page even if you cannot donate. Word of mouth to friends and family is crucial to fundraisers like mine.
Thanks again!

I wish I'd seen this post sooner...but I'd like to say thank you to Ryan for everything he does for the loons. Creating a fundraiser takes dedication, hard work, and lots of time. As an avid bird watcher, I couldn't be more impressed. Please know there's a large community of people who are very grateful for our contributions. ♥

From a participant/Supporter "Some people may not know that Ryan created this opportunity on his own when he was 11 and has done all of the work to get sponsors and support. He is a go getter and I know that the agencies working to the same end are so glad to have his dedication and enthusiasm for such a worthy cause. Thank you Ryan!!!"
