This past month was a little crazy for most of us council members; what with Farm Show and State Leadership conference. But now with those out of the way we can take a short break for a bit. However coming up in May we have our PA State Capitol Days.
But with 4-H aside, this past week I delivered my final presentation for my high school senior project. (an assignment necessary for me to graduate) I did my project based on the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program, which is sponsored by the NRA. The program teaches children in grades K-3 about the 4 basic ways to stay safe around firearms, which are,
LEAVE THE AREA
AND TELL AN ADULT.
I particularly liked this program, because sadly gun safety is no longer taught in schools, so children are no longer instructed about gun safety unless the attend a hunter's safety class. As a plug for the 4-H program after I presented I also offered the number for the local extension office for interested kids, who when they were ready, could enroll in our local shooting sports clubs.
