Letter to the editor: Ducks Unlimited loses longtime supporter

Posted: December 1, 2013 - 8:45pm

 

The community of Ninilchik and Ducks Unlimited Alaska volunteers have suffered a great loss with the passing of Doug Blossom on October 10, 2013.

A homestead era, well known resident, Doug was a fervent supporter of conservation and along with those beliefs, a strong Ducks Unlimited (DU) volunteer and supporter. Doug and his family have been active supporters of the local DU fundraiser held in Ninilchick since its beginning in 1986. We at Ducks Unlimited Alaska salute Doug and family for work well done. We only hope the legacy of the Blossom family will continue as conservationists in all grassroots efforts.

Roger Penrod

DU Past State Chairman

Thank you

My hat's off to Mr. Blossom for his years of service and support of habitat conservation. May he rest in peace and his family find some solace knowing that much of his time on this earth was spent helping to make it a better place for all.

I have been involved with DU for many years, having brought the first banquet to Cordova. While I did not know Mr. Blossom, I am delighted to know that there is a DU showing in Ninilchik. I am moving there tomorrow. (Happily!)

It's people like Mr. Blossom that keep the ducks flying and the habitats healthy. I'll bet he's having a ball in his Duck Blind right now.
