6B Wednesday, May 23, 2001 Bulietin, Progressive, i m Thanks to a grant from the National Rifle Association (NRA) Foundation Friends of NRA program, the Quincy Sport Shooting Association is receiving $8,283 to underwrite the 4-H and Junior Trap Shoot- ing programs. "We are very excited about 4.H and Junior Trap Shooting Programs," said Quincy Friends of NRA volunteer John Pullan, "and pleased that the NRA is making an invest- ment in our community." The installation of a new trap machine will allow the Quincy Sport Shooting Associ- ation (QSSA) to continue its existing 4-H and Junior Trap Shooting programs. The pur- pose is to instill basic princi- pals of firearm safety and shooting skills in young girls and boys in the community. On hand to receive the check was John Pullan, l resident of the QSSA. Friends of NRA is a grass- roots, community-minded pro- gram supported by gun own- ers, sportsmen and NRA friends that conduct banquets and other fund-raising events to generate income for the NRA Foundation. Last year, the Friends of NRA raised a net of nearly $8.1 million through events in 701 communities nationwide. The NRA Foundation has awarded over 1,101 grants na- tionaUy, with $267,000 in funds supporting charitable pro- grams in the northern Califor- nia area. The NRA Foundation sup- ports a broad range of pro- grams and services that bene- fit local c' munities, from providing shouting range ac- cess for physically-disabled shooters to firearms safety, ed- ucation and leadership pro- grams for America's youth. Some of the pr.ograms in- clude the "Eddie Eagle Gun Safety" program, which teach- es elementary school children gun safety; the "Environment, Conservation and Hunting Outreach" (ECHO) program that promotes the wise use of natural resources and hunter safety and ethics; and the "Refuse To Be A Victim" pro- gram, instructing women in how to live safer, more secure lives, among many others.
