TRGC Raises Money for Scholarship Fund!
On December 11, 2016, Talbot Rod and Gun Club hosted a fundraising event in honor of Kirby Allen Councell, a 9-year-old, who died in an ATV accident in June. All funds were donated to the Kirby Allen Councell Scholarship Fund. The entire story was published in the Kent County News section of the My Eastern Shore Maryland website at: www.myeasternshoremd.com/kent_county_news/community/article_c132f42d-85b6-5f51-9a33-78aad052d3ef.html.

Spring 2016; New Trees!
Some of you may have noticed an odd missing tree or two around the TRGC property, namely that ol' Norway Maple between fields 3 and 4. We're pleased to announce that two new trees have been sourced and planted (as you can see) to take her place! And a special thanks to Paul Bergere for coordinating a donation from the Pieces crew and Alan's Army to offset the purchase of these fine specimens. If you are interested in donating to the cause, please see any board member or leave your donation in the donation jug with a note referencing "TREES".
Over the course of the next few weeks, several more trees will be arriving and placed throughout the property. A big thanks to Mike Tagliavia and Don Proctor for coordinating these efforts.
