The St. Mary’s Archery Club made a generous donation of $700 for Phase II of the Company F Memorial this past month (October 2016). Another member of the Archery Club added $300 to the contribution to make the total donation an even $1,000.
The Archery Club on the Oak Orchard River in Waterport is open to the public during peak fly-fishing season in October, including hosting a Catch & Release Fishing Derby. They built a new kitchen this year and are serving breakfast and lunch during the fishing season to fishermen & women visiting from all over the country. While we were there, we met groups from Delaware, Ohio and Pennsylvania who shared with us that THIS is their favorite fall fishing spot!
THANK YOU, members of the Archery Club (several who are veterans), for the contribution toward the statue as well as for being excellent ambassadors for Orleans County and our visitors!
