Country station KCSR-AM in Chadron, Nebraska recently put up a neat announcement about their local 4-H Club receiving a generous hand from the local Friends of NRA committee.
Dawes County 4-H Club Receives Grant Worth Nearly $2,000
Due to dramatic growth in the last couple of years, the Dawes County Super BB’s 4-H Club has been running short on the regulation guns that are required for the sport. Thanks to the generosity of the National Rifle Association Foundation, the club received a grant of nearly $2,000 with which to purchase more equipment. They were able to purchase five new BB guns and two new air rifles with extra air cylinders. Youth will be able to use these guns at practice and take them to matches so that everyone can participate.
A lot of youth purchase their own guns, but in these economically challenging times, not all families are able to. The club does not discriminate against any youth that is unable to purchase their own and try hard to have enough guns for everyone.
The Dawes County Shooting Sports program has 23 Nebraska state certified instructors, four of which are also nationally certified.
