The Roscommon Area Youth Booster Club (RAYBC) recently received a Grant totaling $2,400.00 from the Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) to purchase archery equipment for the Roscommon Archery Club.

The After-School Archery Program was so popular that they didn’t have enough equipment for the forty-plus elementary school students that wanted to participate last year. The RAC hopes to get more kids active and interested in outdoor activities.

Studies have shown that archery programs improve classroom performance and reduce drop-out rates. According to Brian Piccolo, RAC President, “The support of local community partners is essential to our efforts to get kids active, outdoors and hunting. Once again, thank you for your support.”

Grant Funding was provided by the Roscommon County General Fund and the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund.
