Hardin County Sharpshooters 4-H Club seeking new members

ADA, Ohio -  The Hardin County Sharpshooters 4-H Club is seeking new members.  Any Hardin County youth who was in 3rd grade and 8 years old as of January 1st is eligible to join.  In our club, youth will learn about gun safety, hunter safety, and how to shoot shotgun and rifle.  4-H shooting sports clubs are run by volunteers who have passed a BCI background check, protection of minors training, and completed rigorous shooting safety training by Ohio 4-H and Ohio State University.  Safety is our number one priority, and we believe that through 4-H shooting sports activities, youth can learn to use firearms with safety and respect.
