The best prime rib dinner in the state, he said.
Yup, that’s how Frank Dunbar described the treat we would receive when we visited the Buck’s Mills Rod & Gun Club in Bucksport – and that’ s just what we got! Oh my, it’s been a long time since I’ve had prime rib like that!
It being the Game Warden Appreciation night, it was a privilege for Roger to be the guest speaker and share about his book and his exploits – some of them were with a few of the wardens that also attended…..
Roger got the evening started off, then Lt. Dan Scott shared an update on the Maine Warden Service and each game warden, retired or currently working, stood and shared a little tidbit about themselves, their patrols, and their take on the job. Great memories were shared and even for these game wardens, some of them were the good part of the job as well as the difficult part of the job. Many spoke on how taxing it can be on oneself as well as one’s family. But all agreed that it was the best job on earth.
I, personally, loved it when one of the last to stand was fresh-out-of-the-academy Game Warden John Carter. When he stood, he said something to the effect of …”yesterday, I started making my memories”. To which I say, the best is yet to come!
Thanks again, to Frank & Jackie Dunbar for seeking us out to invite us!
