    "Chip is a take charge type of individual who goes above and beyond in whatever endeavor he is involved in. He has been with the Greater Androscoggin Friends of NRA since 2010 and has served as the treasurer since 2011. Chip creates the Banquet Flyer, Dinner Tickets, and all raffles. He keeps track of all ticket sales, sponsors and donors as well as stores all of the banquet merchandise and supplies. His figures and spreadsheets are spot on and he is my go to guy for any questions, ideas or new suggestions every year. He attends other banquets in Maine to support other committees and gain ideas on how to improve his own banquet. He attends the Maine State Fund Committee meeting as well as the Area 1 Volunteer Workshop every year.

    Chip works every gun show within a 1 hour drive from Lewiston, selling thousands of dollars in raffle tickets. He also promotes the Greater Androscoggin banquet at several area gun clubs, and Fish and Game Associations. He is an excellent Attorney with a successful law firm and takes time away from that busy job to make sure the banquet is a success year after year. Chip is the Vice President and Grant writer of the Androscoggin Fish & Game Association and is very active in the Auburn Rifle Club."
