laws and legislation

Don't be the target, be on target!
Your legislators need to hear from you regularly!

On the downside: hunting license fees may double; there's an effort to ban leg hold traps. On the up: a renewed effort to add Sunday hunting

Stay informed and do not be shy about contacting your legislator and important committee members. Let them get to know you by your first name. If you have local legislator who doesn't understand out perspective, take they time to educate them, nicely. They don't have to agree with all your points, as long as they realize the importance of protecting hunting rights.

Bookmark the Connecticut Sportsmen's Association web page on legislative updates, then check it frequently during the legislative session.

After that, call, e-mail and/or write your legislator about these bills.

Here are those URL addresses again if you want to write them down:

East Haddam clean-up day

Coming up!

WHEN ?: Saturday, April 4, 2009 - starting at 8:00 a.m [earlier if you'd like]
WHERE ?: Meet at the East Haddam Town Hall/Grange, on Town Street across from First Church Cemetery. There you can get large garbage bags and help coordinate clean up by either getting an assigned area or let organizers know where you plan on cleaning up.
WHO ?: Me. You. Your family and friends. Anyone can help out. It's a town-wide event


This is an illegal dump pile somewhere in the woods of East Haddam.
   Too bad it is not the only place like this to clean up.
   You can help by picking up litter from the roadsides, pulling an old fridge or stack of broken computers from underneath some brush; all of it is fair game to pick up and bring to the Transfer Station.
   On Earth Day, for those helping with town clean-up, Transfer Station drop-off fees are waived for such junk.

   All those working hard at cleaning up the garbage [including you] are invited around noon to the Moodus Sportsmen's Club for lunch. [Check to the right side of this page for directions]
