HBK Volunteers at Montgomery County Youth Field Day
On Saturday, August 23rd, Brian Mulligan was one of dozens of volunteers at the Montgomery County Youth Field Day. The field day hosted 200 young people ages 9 to 15 for a free day of outdoor activities at Boy Scout Camp Hart in Marlborough Township, Pennsylvania. Brian worked on a team that provided archery instruction to the 200 participants who ranged in experience levels from beginner to advanced. Brian’s daughter, Olivia, participated in the Youth Field Day as well. The participants were enthusiastic despite the rain which was present the majority of the day.
The purpose of Youth Field Day is to introduce youth to outdoor sports such as canoeing, fishing, archery, trapping and hunting. Youth Field Day provides opportunities for the youth to be exposed to these outdoor sports through closely supervised hands-on activities. Youth Field Day is produced by volunteers from local sportsmen’s groups and businesses in association with the PA Game Commission and the PA Fish and Boat Commission. The event is totally free to all participants. The event is designed to expose youths to traditions that they may otherwise not experience as a result of the highly urbanized areas where opportunities to experience these traditions may be limited
