Welcome to our beautiful and beloved club. Please help us keep it that way by picking up after yourself and taking your trash home with you.

You carried it in, so you carry it out.

The good folks who volunteer their time to mow should not have to stop and pick up debris that could damage the mower or otherwise be thrown by the mower.

Hello Good People of the Greene Rod and Gun Club,

The Greene Rod and Gun Club invites you to join us and the Freije family for a ceremony to dedicate the 500 yard rifle range to our former club president Nick Freije.

Saturday 9-25-2021 10 am at the 500 yard range shelter.

 

Nick’s sons Mark and Gary will take the first shots on the 500 yard range. When the Freije family is done, we will open the range to those that helped at any of the multiple work parties to build the range. Afterward, the 500 range will be announced to be open to the general membership.

 

We hope to see you there.
