Past WLOPA events:
We held our Christmas Party on Dec. 5th and it was very well
attended and all had a good time enjoying friendships and great
food. Thanks to all who helped with the Christmas Party and
also the Handicap Party the next day. Santa was there and
entertained everyone. A special thank you to Spartan II
Restaurant in Plantsville who donated their time and food to the
Handicap Party which the children and adults enjoyed.
Thanks to all who helped with our Fall Cleanup on Nov. 16th 2014.
We held our Annual Breast Cancer Shoot on July 19th and it
was a success. Thanks to all who helped, especially for Frank
Noble and his team for running this event. There were several
squads and money was raised for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and
for local emergency relief. There were great bucket raffle
prizes and a silent auction featuring a Duck Commander Mossberg long
gun. Several businesses contributed prizes and we appreciate
all that the local businesses did to support this event.
There was a Defensive Driving Course given by club member
Bill Howard from AAA. Thanks to Bill for spending the time to
teach this class to our members.
The Annual Friends of NRA Dinner at the Aqua Turf was a
great time and WLOPA had four tables in support of this event.
New storage garage for clay birds. We finally got rid of
all of the dilapidated trailers
