For the third year in a row, the Baldwinsville Rod and Gun Club received a grant from the Friends of the National Rifle Association (FNRA). The $5,000 grant will be used to update the club's rifle ranges to current standards. President Tom Merrill (second from left), Treasurer Dave Urban (center) and Vice President Jim Hinman (second from right) accepted the grant from Dave Simmons (left), FNRA's second chairman, and Mike Ouderkirk (right), FNRA's chairman. The FNRA have given local gun clubs thousands of dollars in grants to update their ranges, education and promote community service programs. If you are a sports person, please join the NRA so they can continue to fund these types of projects. The FNRA will hold the 17th annual fundraising banquet and auction May 1at the OnCenter in Syracuse. For reservations, call Denise Simmons at 247-5140 or Ouderkirk at 592-9734.
