Wild Game Night brings in over $650 for camp
by Trinity Gruenberg
The Verndale Family Life Church held its third annual Wild Game Feed on February 22. The annual fundraiser allows them to send kids to camp.
Pastor Kenneth Kjeldergaard explained it is a night of mentorship for men and boys. He explained they ask the men to bring a boy with them to the event that may not have a father figure. It is part of the Royal Rangers program which is small group church ministry for boys and young men in grades K-12.
The mission is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christlike men by providing Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men.
Visitors brought their taxidermied trophies for display to add to the aesthetic of the wild game night while outdoor videos played on the screens. There also were speakers and door prizes donated by 16 local businesses such as a .22, shotgun, pop up fish house and a fishing trip among other items.
The main dish was venison, teriyaki venison, along with goose, elk and smoked turkey legs.
There were nearly 200 people in attendance. The event raised over $650.
