The Hempstead County Shooting Sports Club received a check for nearly $3,500 from the Piney Woods Friends of the NRA on Monday September 18th at the Hempstead County Courthouse. Joining Cyril and Phyllis Stewart from Piney Woods was Erica Dunn, NRA Field Representative for the state of Arkansas. Dunn noted the funding for such grants come from the money raised at Friends of NRA banquets from around the state. The Piney Woods banquet is set for Saturday September 30th at 5:30pm at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Prescott. On hand from the Hempstead County Shooting Sports Club was Cody Lockhart, Harlie Lockhart, Mark Lockhart, Kelsea Beasley, Marcus Beasley, Kobey Powell, Landon Dougan, Trent Hammond, Lane Lockhart, and Kassidy Beasley. Hempstead County Judge Haskell Morse, an NRA supporter, was also on hand for the presentation.
