Annual Outdoor Sports Day at the Wiregrass

School may have been out for Veteran's Day, however nearly 50 youngsters took part in the annual 4-H Wiregrass Outdoor Sports Day.

The elementary and middle school youngsters were instructed in archery, firearms and outdoor water safety.

Personnel with the Alabama Department of Conservation and several other agencies serve as counselors at Camp Alaflo in Coffee County.

The children are from 4-H chapters in six Wiregrass counties.

"We’re playing Frisbee golf, archery, learning to use firearms safely; all fun outdoor activities that are enjoyed by the kids," said Beth Griffin of 4-H Regional Coordinator.

Organizers of Friday’s event say it's a great way to teach young people about respecting Mother Nature and all that she offers.
