DSC_0134COSHOCTON – Members of the Muskingum Valley Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) donated $500 to the Coshocton County 4-H shooting sports program on Friday, June 20.

Representing the program were Amanda Lautenschleger and Vearl Specht. The two are shotgun instructors with the program and said about the donation, “It will help buy shells and the supplies we need for the program. This is a very generous donation from the NWTF and we are mighty grateful for the contribution.”
