The open house (membership drive) was very successful. I would like to thank God for the beautiful weather and for the opportunity to share the day amid all the unrest and uncertain times we are in. Thank you to Manor Grill, Jakes’ Haggle Hut, Delmont Walmart, Manor Valley Golf, Bell View Foods, Espey’s Meat Market and John Reed for their donations. Thanks to Jack and Diane Ruffner, Charlie Pekar, Kevin Kennelty, Ken Gray, and George Tay for the Chinese Auction baskets. And a special thank you to all the officers, members, members family and SAS shooters who gave their time to make this day so special.
It would be easy to measure the success of the day by how many members signed up but I measure the success by the stories that are told. Seeing and hearing the excitement from the families that came. From the little girl (about 3 years old – with permission of course) who shot a handgun, the children that stood in line to throw the knives talking about what they want to try next and what they will go back and do again, the adults who told me they never shot trap before and absolutely loved it.
As I visited each station to see how things were going, I was overwhelmed by the patience, attention to the details in the instruction and the sheer joy in sharing that everyone exuded. Thank you so much for being there and sharing what you love to do. I measure the success of the day by the smiles, the laughter, the friendship, and the fond memories of the day shared.
Calling all students in grades 1 through 12!
