Member update – Grants, Member Drives and Donations

Four Corners SCIThank you to those of you who were able to make the trip to the SCI open forum meeting last night. We are expecting great things in the coming months.

A few of you requested information regarding where our fundraising efforts go. We did discuss this topic in detail and will be sharing regular updates with you all on our website. In that respect, if you know of a group who could use a grant, details for submitting your request can be found on the website. fourcornerssci.com

We also discussed a firearm raffle which will be included in an upcoming membership drive. Please subscribe and stay tuned for additional details.

It takes quite a bit of time, effort and management to get the donations for the annual banquet/fundraiser. We worked on some OUTSTANDING hunt offerings and look forward to sharing those with you as well. If you or someone you know would like to help in this process, it is always appreciated.

We look forward to seeing many of you at future events and sincerely appreciate your input, help and requests.
