The Taku River Valley Sportsmen's Association donated $2,000 to fund this year's 4-H Outdoor Skills/Alaska Department of Fish and Game Hunter Education and Firearms Safety program this week at Floyd Dryden Middle School. Almost 200 sixth-graders will take part in the week-long program, in its sixth year, which introduces them to basics of conservation, hunting and shooting. Bob Shorey of the sportsmen's association presents a $2,000 check to sixth-graders Shannon Luckenbihl, Veronica Buness, Alora Pilgrim and Ian Grant, and Floyd Dryden sixth grade teacher Sande Walter.
