GUN AND KNIFE SHOW – The Shiawassee Conservation Association held its annual gun and knife show Sunday, Feb. 14 at the club’s M-52 property that was originally donated by James Oliver Curwood. It was the 15th-annual gun and knife show for the club that was founded in 1907, and 43 vendors participated. The event raised money for the group’s rifle/pistol range that is located on site, and 350 people attended.
In addition to their annual gun and knife shows, the club has several other big events planned for the upcoming months, including a Prime Rib Dinner in March that will benefit local schools, their Wheels For Warriors car show to benefit local veterans that will be held this July and their 108th anniversary BBQ in August.
The club also offers Euchre and shuffleboard leagues, spring and fall Hunter safety courses, hall and pavilion rentals, fish fry Fridays, and weekly Wednesday car shows during the warm weather months. All events are open to the club’s approximately 500 members and the general public as well. They are still seeking donations for their Prime Rib Dinner, which will include silent and live auctions, as well as several raffles. (Independent Photo/Graham Sturgeon)
