The Smith County chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation will hold its annual Upland Game Bird banquet and auction Friday at the Tyler Rose Garden Center, 420 Rose Park Drive.
Doors to the event will open at 5:30 p.m. and tickets will be available at the door. Ticket prices are $55 for singles, $80 for couples and $20 for youth.
“We call it the Upland Game Bird banquet because it benefits everything like deer and quail. The habitat work when they do prescribed burns and other things benefit everything,” said Chris Swift, local chapter spokesman.


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
