Kisatchie Friends of the NRA raises $56K at annual banquet


The Kisatchie Friends of the National Rifle Association had another good year as they raised approximately $56,000.

The gun of the year, a Montana Rifle American Legends .300 Winchester Mag Rifle, went to Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper, selling at auction for $1,900. Other auction items included a variety of rifles, pistols, knives, an NRA blanket and beautiful artwork.

Phillip Krouse, Kisatchie NRA chair, says the annual banquet and fundraiser is to raise money for youth shooting sports and to promote and teach gun safety. It also helps with gun purchases, skeets and training materials, he said.

The oldest veteran in attendance at the annual NRA banquet and fundraiser was recognized Saturday. Billy Reeves, 94, served in WWII, and was allowed to go first in line for supper. He was also presented with a wooden decorative piece. Michelle Bates/Press-Herald
