Board Member History

 

For an idea or organization to survive, it must have leaders or more importantly representatives of a group's ideals.  The Club members listed below stepped up to not only lead, but represent the values and ethics to make this group of Second Amendment protectors a standout group.  A group that not only serves its membership but serves the community and the future.  Somewhere out there is a young person who will develop a love of responsible use of fireams.  This club will serve that person as it has served us.
August "Augie" Margenau, Club Historian
