I t was a night of guns, fun and conservation for the Palestine Chapter of Ducks Unlimited banquet. “It was a great success, one of the best banquets we’ve hosted – in attendance and contributions,” said Jon Piersol, Palestine chapter chairman. “The community really showed a lot of support, and we made a lot of money for wildlife conservation.” Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. Palestine’s chapter was the fourth formed in the state. It has sponsored an annual banquet for more than 40 years. Piersol said next year’s banquet will take place near the end of October in the same spot, the Anderson County Youth Livestock Pavilion.
