Adams County 4-H Shooting Sports to hold fund raiser

The Adams County 4-H Shooting Sports Program will hold a chili dinner and auction fundraiser on Saturday, March 4, from 4-7 p.m. in the Senior Fair Administration Building at the Adams County Fairgrounds.
A complete chili dinner with a peanut butter sandwich will cost just $5 per person. Hot dogs, chili dogs, and other items will also be available. The dinner will be followed by an auction of cakes, baked goods, and other miscellaneous items at 7 p.m.
This year, the Shooting Sports Program is specifically raising funds to purchase an equipment storage trailer. Any additional proceeds from the event will pay for advisor training, new equipment, ammunition, and Shooting Sports Camp scholarships for the county’s 4-H Shooting Sports Program.
This year, more than 20 youth are enrolled in one or more of the shooting sports projects – riflery, pistol, archery, and shotgun. They are learning firearm safety and practicing their marksmanship, while also developing important life skills, such as leadership, decision making, and communication.
Leadership to the program is provided by screened and certified adult volunteers including Nan Knechtly and Don Kamps, program coordinators, and Connie McDonald, Jane Smart, Sam Kimmerly, and Heather Simpkins, instructors. Joseph Kimmerly serves as Junior Leader for the program.
Come on out, enjoy dinner for just $5 per person, and bid on an item or two during the auction. You may also purchase a raffle ticket from a member of the Adams County Horsemen’s Association. There will be a raffle for an S&W M&P 22LR Pistol.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the 4-H Shooting Sports Program.
