4H S.A.F.E.T.Y.

Neshoba County 4H has a well-established S.A.F.E.T.Y. Shooting Sports Club for youth ages 8- 18. The disciplines offered are Archery, Shotgun, .22 rifle, .22 pistol, air rifle, and air pistol. Last year, over 40 kids competed in local competitions, and some went on to statewide and even a national competition. The goal of this club is to teach the youth of our community about firearms safety and conservation via weekly practices and a little friendly competition. While accomplishing this main goal, our kids also learn a great deal responsibility and have fun doing it. Parents AND children interested in joining need to attend the Safety Meeting at the Neshoba County Coliseum Multi-purpose room on Friday, January 24th at 6:00 p.m. During this meeting you will learn the profitability of enrolling in 4H as well as all the details associated with joining this particular club. Dues of $20 per discipline will be requested at the meeting. For questions please contact the Neshoba County Extension Office at 601-565-4011.
