Lions Club Sponsors Turkey Shoots On November 5, 12 and 19Oct 13th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Community News
The Madison Lions Club is sponsoring a turkey shoot from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on three consecutive Saturdays in November (Nov. 5, 12, and 19). Location: Highway 53 South, near Greene Publishing, Inc. For more information, call Jay Lee at 973-7509.
A “turkey shoot” is a shooting contest where frozen turkeys are awarded as prizes. 12-guage and 20-guage shotguns will be available. Participants may use their own 12-guage or 20-guarge shotguns to shoot at targets, approximately 25-35 yards away. The winner is chosen according to which target has a shot closest to its center cross-mark. Hot dogs and drinks will be sold.
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Founded in 1917, Lions are best known for fighting blindness. Lions Club International is the world’s largest service club organization. Since the club’s chartering in 1949, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as providing eyeglass exams and glasses for those who can’t afford them and assisting with other vision needs. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from fundraising events go to provide clear vision for folks in the Madison community. Our motto is “We serve.”
