The community of Webster will be getting a new 3D outdoor archery range thanks to the South Dakota Farm Bureau Centennial Community Initiative. The new facility will be recognized at an Open House on Friday, October 27 from 3-7 at the facility along US Highway 12 west of Webster. Clark / Day County Farm Bureau will be grilling steak sandwiches at the event.
“Our area has seen a tremendous growth in shooting sports thanks to the 4-H program and general interest by the community. This outdoor range will now offer 3D archery in addition to the existing indoor range,” said Jerry Mork, Clark / Day County Vice President. “We are very appreciative to SDFB and several local businesses that have helped make this a reality. The value to the youth alone will be tremendous.”
The improvements were possible thanks to a $5,000 donation from the South Dakota Farm Bureau Centennial Community Initiative, Clark / Day County Farm Bureau and several local businesses.
The SDFB Centennial Community Initiative is a grant program for community projects that serve a need in a community, make a difference, have high visibility and reflect Farm Bureau’s mission and vision. SDFB invested $100,000 in local communities for community improvement projects during its centennial year in 2017.
The project in Webster, as well as other projects that took place during the SDFB Centennial Year will be recognized at the SDFB Centennial Convention, November 17-18, 2017 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. To learn more about the Centennial Convention visit www.sdfbf.org.
