A local hunting club served up a bit of something special Saturday night, when they held their annual awards show at Atkinson’s Sports Bar.
Handing out nine awards, the Rusty Rifles Annual Members’ Awards Party welcomed their club for a celebration of the season, complete with a venison spaghetti sauce freshly made by their own meambers.
“We usually have 50 people here,” said Bruce Hodgins, president of the hunting club. “We hand out lots of different prizes for categories in hunting and fishing.”
