We were so happy to have Dick Richardson, decoy collector and president of the Long Island Decoy Collectors Association, as our speaker at our September meeting. Dick showed us his many prized decoys he's collected over the years from local carvers and duck hunters. It was our pleasure to have his family and many of Dick's fellow collectors and associates with us for the evening. Thank you Dick and to all who attended for a great evening.
