Hi everyone, just a reminder that our monthly meeting will be held June 28th at the Viking Hall in Braintree MA. This months entertainment will be a well respected writer who has done alot more than talk about saving our fisheries.

Directions to the hall can be found at www.msba.net



Dick Russell



For most of the past twenty years, the primary focus of Dick Russell's magazine writing and personal activism has been the environment - particularly the crisis impacting the world's fisheries and oceans. A longtime sports fisherman, Russell spent the better part of three years fighting for stronger regulations to protect the endangered Atlantic striped bass. He organized a national conference in Washington, D.C., and appeared on numerous radio and TV programs. For his efforts, Russell was awarded the citizen's Chevron Conservation Award in 1988. Today, the return of the striped bass is considered the foremost example of the resiliency of the oceans - provided a species is given a chance to recover. His new book on this subject, Striper Wars: An American Fish Story, is a great read.

Dick Russell will be discussing his book as well as the striped bass in general, I hope everyone can make it. It should be a great night.

As always we will have a brief business meeting, a short break, the entertainment and finally a raffle. Hope to see you all there..
