Windsor Fish & Game Association

 

Windsor Fish and Game was organized in January 1921 with Park M. Holtzinger serving as President from 1921 – 1935. You might notice that the newspaper clipping below states that Park M. Holtzinger served from 1921-1931 - that is in error. Another newspaper clipping states that On March 19th, 1935 - Mr. Park M. Holtzinger (who has served as President of the association since its founding) declined nomination for another term.

Lee Baker (in the picture below) sold White Leghorn (bred from large old hens) as noted in many newspaper clippings. One such article was dated March 13th, 1936.

 

Windsor Fish & Game Association

 

By April 1934, club membership had grown to 265. Members enjoyed activities which included Crow Shoots, Raising Rabbits and Pheasants, Spreading Feed for Animals and Birds, Displays at the Band Fair, Shooting Matches, Picnics and much more!

 

The land bought for the range was 1st owned by Wes Beaverson, it was bought or passed on to Dan Beaverson from East Prospect, and the club purchased it from him. Wes was Mahlon Dietz grandfather & Dan was his uncle that is how they got the land. To purchase the land three people put the homes up as collateral, they were Charlie Snyder President at the time, Mahlon Dietz Treasurer and Clinton Smith a friend of the club. Clinton Smith was Harvey Smith’s grandfather.
