4-H rifle safety meeting Saturday

SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County 4-H Club will hold its spring Rifle .22 Safety Orientation meeting Saturday.

Children interested in participating in the 4-H Rifle .22 programs must attend a safety orientation meeting first, and Kathie Kralik, Summit County 4-H Coordinator, encourages parents to join their children for the meeting.

“What we really try to do is get the parents involved so they understand our approach,” Kralik said. “Our approach is definitely education and safety.”

The 4-H Rifle .22 programs are open to children 8 through 18 (children must have turned 8 by January 1 to participate) and focus on target shooting. They do not teach hunting skills. All 4-H programs are taught by certified leaders.

Saturday’s safety orientation meeting will teach interested participants gun handling safety procedures and consequences. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Buffalo Mountain Room at the County Commons.

For more information, contact Kathie Kralik at (970) 668-4142.
