The event coordinators would also like to express their gratitude to all members of the Kosciusko County Shrine Club. The Club, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary, is best known for the annual trip for third graders to the “Shrine Circus”, with over 65,000 students, since 1957, taken for free.

Moreover, the club firmly realizes ‘No man is taller than when he bends down to help a child’. On average, the county has more than 125 patients treated with “world-class” orthopedic and burns care; regardless of ability to pay. The Turkey Shoot provides a way for the community to support the local Kosciusko County Sanctuary Club and its philanthropic mission to support Sanctuary hospitals.

The American Legion Post No. 49 donated $1,200 to the Shrine Children’s Hospital.
