I don’t know Larry Potterfield, but today I know a little about him. He was the Key Note speaker and Sponsor for MDF’s Saturday night event during the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo. And, did he ever lay it out. Here’s a man who understands the meaning of walking softly and carrying a big stick.
He also addressed the MDF volunteers at the Volunteer Recognition and Life Member brunch earlier in the day. Some of his messages: Work hard, have a good business strategy, foster teamwork, reward your workers, create a model that works and have confidence in your plan.
He spoke about MidwayUSA’s “Round up for NRA” program where they raised millions of dollars by taking donations 50 cents at a time and also about the local cocktail party at his home that evolved into the “Friends of the NRA” one of the most successful fundraising programs around.
He spoke of the Potterfield Family Foundation and his desires to expand their financial support for hunting and fishing, especially youth programs.
What a nice combination – Larry Potterfield and The Mule Deer Foundation.
