Annual DD Chili Fest

 March of every year at Dawson Bryant High School – Coal Grove, Ohio

Our Chapter Donates to this event by renting a table booth, decorating it in our NWTF style and serving over 1,000 samples of Chili made by our Committee members .  We hand out flyers to all that attend this event to let them know who we are and about all of our events each year.  All money raised for this event goes to support the Lawrence County Ohio Board of DD Organization and to raise awareness of DD in our community.

Lawrence County Fair

  July each year during fair week – Lawrence County Fair Grounds – Proctorville, Ohio

Our Chapter rents a booth during the week of the fair in an air conditioned building and we hand out chapter flyers about our event information.  We share this booth with some of our partners, Ohio Division of Wildlife, USDA Wayne National Forest, Special Needs Youth Sportsmen, Inc. and Symmes Creek Restoration Committee.

 

JAKES TAKE AIM TRAILER

We also, set up the JAKES Take Aim Trailer (Portable BB Gun Range) during the evenings the week of the fair.  This provides an opportunity for our youth to be educated on the safety of properly shooting and handling of a BB gun.  Our chapter committee members instruct and operate this range. The Ohio State NWTF has three of these JAKES Take Aim trailers. The trailers were donated to Ohio NWTF by Larry and Brenda Potterfield of Midway USA.

 

HUNTER’S EDUCATION COURSES

Starting in February of 2017 our chapter will host a Hunter’s Education Course once a year.  Our chapter has four certified Instructors and will host one class in February every year.

Anyone interested in participating in the Ohio Hunter’s Education Course hosted by our chapter should observe this web site or follow us on Facebook for all future details, class dates, times and locations.

Anyone interested in the Ohio Hunter’s Education Class must register online at Ohio Division of Wildlife Website.  We have provided a shortcut to this site at the bottom of each web page on our site.  Just click on  at the bottom.

 

TURKEY HUNTER'S CARE PROGRAM

Our Chapter is planning on raising the spirits of needy families in the community by taking part in the out reach program started by the NWTF called Turkey Hunters Care Program, where we will provide frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to needy families in Lawrence County Ohio.

We believe during the holidays “Family is the focus for many during the holiday season. We can help less fortunate families enjoy time with each other by eliminating some of their worries,”.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

 Our chapter presents two scholarships each year in the amount of $500 each to two high school seniors that are enrolled in high schools in Lawrence County.

The first scholarship is named is named “In Loving Memory of Levon Kingrey” who was one of the first avid turkey hunters in Lawrence County who harvested a turkey in our county many years ago.  This scholarship was started in his memory by his son, and long-time committee member, past State NWTF Board member and past chapter president, Larry Kingrey.

The second scholarship is named “In Loving Memory of Fred Pernestti” who was one of our chapters first Wheelin’ Sportsmen members who participated in our fall hunt each year. This scholarship was started in his memory by his son, and long-time Committee member, current Banquet Chairman and Chapter President Larry Pernestti and his mother Phyllis Pernestti.

Both Scholarships are announced for applicants in late November each year and are given to each high school Guidance Counselor to distribute.  The application deadline for these scholarships is January 1st every year so that the Scholarship Committee may review and score them to determine the two winners.  The winners will be announced and one winner’s scholarship packet will be forwarded to the Ohio State NWTF Board to be reviewed and to be eligible for the $1,000 state scholarship given out in February each year. The State $1,000 winner will then be forwarded to Edgefield, SC and eligible for National Scholarship award for $10,000 to be awarded in May.

Any high school senior that is enrolled and lives in Lawrence County Ohio must ask your Guidance Counselor for details on the NWTF Local Chapter Scholarship Application.

All applications must be submitted to South Hills Chapter Scholarship Committee member listed on the application. The appropriate address to be mailed will be included in the scholarship packet.
