Friends of the NRA Banquet

Friends of the NRA Banquet

The Tobacco Valley Friends of the NRA will have their annual fundraising banquet on March 12 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds starting at 5:30pm. Tickets are $30/person which includes a full prime rib dinner catered by the Point of Rocks. Only three hundred tickets are available for this event and they go quickly. Tammy Owen reports they always sell out for this annual banquet so people should buy tickets soon.

They can be purchased at Northwest Sports on Highway 93. Tickets will not be available at the door on March 12 so be sure to stop by Northwest Sports this week to get yours.

Besides a delicious dinner, the event also features a silent auction, a live auction, a 'ladies only' table, raffles and a no-host bar. Money raised at the event is mostly used to cover the costs of programs like women's gun safety, hunter education and other safety training courses here in the Tobacco Valley.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) was initially formed in 1871 by Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate. As the association grew, its mission expanded to include training, education and marksmanship. Today there are over 125,000 NRA certified instructors who train approximately one million gun owners a year.

Rita Collins

About the Author: Rita Collins. I am a believer in the power of community and for now I call the Tobacco Valley home. I have lived in nine states and three counties and this community here amazes me - how people reach out to neighbors and even travelers. I've never lived in a place that demonstrates people caring for each other so well. And I've never lived in a place that has such a high percentage of talented musicians and artists. I work with the the Sunburst Community Service Foundation, a nonprofit that began in Eureka twenty years ago and now serves numerous communities in western Montana. And I just started a new business, St. Rita's Amazing Traveling Bookstore and Textual Apothecary. I never could have imagined life being this exciting in my sixth decade.
