The NRA Foundation awarded the Madison County 4-H Program a grant totaling $2,064.13 to fund the 2018 shooting sports program .
"We are very excited about this opportunity to grow the shooting sports program in Madison County and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community," Office Manager Juli Kline said.
This award has provided the Shooting Sports Program with safety equipment, a clay thrower, targets, shooting mats, cleaning equipment, air pistols and all the supplies necessary to support an air pistol project in Madison County for the first time. With the support of trained volunteers, committed families, and NRA Foundation backing, the 4-H Shooting Sports program has grown leaps and bounds in 2018.
Ruth Ann Skaggs, Shooting Sports Coordinator for Madison County said "Thanks to our NRA Grant, our local 4H youth are busy having fun enjoying their Second Amendment freedoms. They’re doing so by participating in youth shooting sports, learning to properly and safely handle firearms while at the same time becoming better shots. The positive news is that many young people—boys and girls, young men and young women—want to see the firearms heritage in our country continue, and are shooting to make that happen."
