The NRA Foundation has awarded the Yellow Medicine Co. 4-H Archery/Shooting Sports & Wildlife Program a grant valuing $1,929.58 to fund new targets, shootings gloves, and arrows to continue the program into the second year. "We are very excited about our the grant allowing us to involve additional youth in our 4-H Archery program "said Alicia Webb, 4-H Program Coordinator, "and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community." The Yellow Medicine County 4-H Archery/ Shooting Sports & Wildlife program started in the summer of 2016, thanks to the leadership of Caitlyn Mahlum and Courtney Anderson, trained and experienced archers and youth instructors; the partnership of the City of Clarkfield and the Canby Sportsmen’s Club; and donations from local businesses Granite Falls Bank, Kockelman Construction of Canby, Canby True Value, First Security Bank-Canby, Curtis & Marilyn Rangaard, Menno & Lucille Fokken, Clark-field Lions, Canby Print Shop, Jim’s Market-Canby, Canby Firefight-ers, and F&M Bank-Clarkfield. “We are so excited to be able to offer 4-H Archery again this summer – it is a costly program to begin and maintain with all of the equipment needed, and with this generous grant we are able to increase the participation numbers in both our Canby & Clarkfield locations. It was an absolutely wonderful experience for the youth involved last year – I heard so many positive comments from both our 4-H’ers and their parents.” – Alicia Webb
