MidwayUSA Donation Supports RMEF’s SAFE Challenge
During the weekend of April 28th, the Grand Junction Colorado chapter of RMEF invited guests from two counties and four school districts to participate in the 4th Annual Outdoor Heritage Day at Riverbend Park in Palisade, Colorado. Over 2,200 people attended this event that was made possible with donations from the Potterfield family.
“The S.A.F.E program is a great way to keep kids happy and provide them with some gun safety and shooting experience,” said Colorado RMEF Volunteer Co-Chair Art Graham. “We have been involved with this event since it started five years ago when only 87 kids show up. The long lines around the shooting events this year were evidence these kids wanted to learn how to shoot and safely.”
There ended up being over 600 children in attendance this year, ranging in ages two to sixteen. Volunteers spent time helping the kids learn about firearm safety and gave them the opportunity to shoot everything from NERF guns to rimfire rifles.
