State Senator Michele Brook Eats Beaver And Gets Goosed

The Lakeland Longbeards 25th annual Big Game Dinner was held last Saturday, and featured everything from venison, bear and beaver, to pheasant and goose. All proceeds go to the local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, for food bank donations, Boy Scout events and more.

Gary Beatty is President of the Longbeards and Hugh “Fuzzy” Shields is an original member. Fuzzy and his wife Virginia are famous for their delicious pheasant pot pie. It’s great to see so many regulars, and watch long-time friends and hunters reunited.

Senator Michele Brooks joined the group as part of her community outreach before returning to Harrisburg to be breaded on the Flu, retention of fire fighters and other state business this week.
