Club Needs/ Wants

This weekend one of the Members said we should reach out and ask Membership about items the club needs or wants.

You never know what someone may no longer need or has extra of or may want to purchase and donate to the club.

You can be provided with a Tax Donation Slip.

So, we will add to the list as needed and see if we may be able to supply the club with items that would be useful.

Of course, these items must be in good working order. Thank you.

  • Pressure  washer (Speaking of pressure washing, it was just done & the building looks amazing, it would be great to have one on site to use as needed so it doesn’t build up- Thanks Rodney and Brad!)
  • Weedwhacker
  • gas powered leaf blower
  • A metal box for storage like the one on the Rifle Range (will get a photo), or something similar
  • Magnet pole for Pistol Range
  • White Target Board for Ranges, this is a regular item in need (we order from: About Us (absolutelygraphic.com)
  • First Aid kits
  • Flat screen TV for clubhouse safety classes, wall hanger

Thank you to Chief Bucknam of the Skowhegan Police Department for the last donation of Target Board!
