The Natchitoches Parish Shooting Range was the scene of good-natured competition as 56 shooters in 14 teams vied for bragging rights in the 3rd annual Pull Together Clay Shoot sponsored by the United Methodist Men Saturday June 17th.
The United Methodist Men sponsor the shoot every year around Father’s Day as a fun event for a worthy cause. The money raised is donated to Empower Nepali Girls, a non-profit whose mission is
“…to empower and support neglected, marginalized, and at-risk girls and young women in Nepal, especially those who are at greatest risk to be forced into early marriage, sold into sex slavery, or abandoned as orphans. We provide scholarships, mentoring, career guidance, and subsistence for children who would not have the opportunity to attend school and pursue future careers in medicine, engineering, business, teaching, and other professions….” http://www.empowernepaligirls.org/
The popular Clay Shoot, in its third year, raised over $6,600.00. The Natchitoches Parish Journal is donating the event photography. Anyone may download and photos they wish. If you do take one you like, please consider a donation to this worthy cause.
