Marengo County 4-H S.A.F.E. shooting sports programs begin new year

School is back in session and the new 4-H year is in full swing!  Youth ages 9-18 have several opportunities to participate in 4-H Shooting Sports in Marengo County.  We offer 4-H Clubs in the areas of Rifle (BB and Air Rifle) and Archery.  Certified instructors lead the clubs, and equipment is available for use. There is no cost for the clubs. 4-H Youth will learn basic firearm safety as well as life-skills such as teamwork, patience and personal discipline.  At the end of the season, club members will have the opportunity to compete with other 4-H youth from across the state. Clubs will meet at the Marengo County Extension Office in Linden, AL.  The address is 2400 East Coats Avenue. For more information, call Beth Yates at 334-750-4964.
