On Thursday May 23rd the Newport Rifle Club will be hosting a fantastic pasta dinner. This event is always fun and proceeds go to a great cause, the NRC Junior Rifle Team. The NRC Junior Rifle Team is ranked as one of the most successful in the country. You can help keep that proud tradition alive by joining the club for a good old-fashioned pasta dinner.
For a mere $10 you’ll get a great pasta dinner and support the next generation of marksmen and women. You’d be hard pressed to find another such outstanding group of young Americans. The Junior Rifle Team has sent members on scholarships to university rifle teams, to our nation’s military academies, and to the National Junior Olympics among other national competitions.
The team is also a great example of civic participation. In 2011 the team was recognized by The American Legion for its efforts to support our troops by helping an Army unit based in Afghanistan build a library of DVDs to keep up morale while deployed. What a great group of young people!
So if you’d like to support the NRC Junior Rifle Team, show up at the Middletown FOP Lodge (map below) on May 24 with $10 in hand and a hunger for pasta in your belly. You’ll be joined by many of the members of the Newport Rifle Club, a crowd that will make you feel at home and always has a good time. The dinner runs from 4:30 to 7:00, so even the early birds can get in and out before the sun goes down.
Included in the festivities will be a raffle for a $75 gift certificate to Island Gun Shop. I was just there and they do have ammunition, so that’s a gift certificate you definitely want!
If you can’t make it, and would like to support the Junior Rifle Team at the Newport Rifle Club with a donation, please e-mail NRC Treasurer Bob King at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on donating. No donation is too small.
Please join us in supporting the youth shooters in Rhode Island. See you there!
