Members of the Wellsboro Social Club Board of Trustees recently presented a check for $5,000 to Mark Hamilton and Gary Wilson, co-chairs of Mill Cove's Second Annual Clays for Kids. The social club is the event's major sponsor.
"We donated $5,000 to Clays for Kids to support this great cause because it benefits many community children," said Wellsboro Social Club Board Secretary Jenny Harer. The Wellsboro Social Club at 127 Kelsey Street in Wellsboro is a nonprofit organization that offers activities and manages a restaurant and bar where members from the community and their families can relax and spend time together.

Volunteers, including the Mill Cove Environmental Area and Education Center Board of Directors, are organizing Clays for Kids. It will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Thunder Ridge Sporting Clays at 619 Leon Brown Road in Middlebury Center, PA 16935.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the outdoor Mill Cove Environmental Education Center where children learn about nature up close and personal, and the Tioga County Children's Advocacy Center, an Asa’s Place program, which will serve child abuse victims ages four to 18 at 16 Water Street in Wellsboro. The facility is expected to open late in 2019 or early in 2020.

The entry fee for men and women participating in Clays for Kids is $130 per person and for a team of four is $500. Lunch only is $20 per person.

Included in the entry fee are: four boxes of ammunition, either 12- or 20-gauge per shooter; 100 target rounds per shooter; golf cart use; lunch and an event T-shirt. Registrants must bring their own gun and eye and ear protection.

Registration and check-in for the Oct. 5 shotgun shoot will begin at 8 a.m. with the shoot to start at 9 a.m. The pork barbecue lunch and presentations about the beneficiaries, the Mill Cove Environmental Education Center and Tioga County Children's Advocacy Center, an Asa’s Place program, will be at noon. At 1 p.m., a raffle will be held and awards presented to the top male, female and team shooters.

Friday, Sept. 20 is the registration deadline for shooters to guarantee an event T-shirt and ammunition.

Those who register online between Sept. 21 and Thursday, Oct. 3 or in person at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, the day the event is being held, will participate in the shoot but will not receive an event T-shirt and may not receive ammunition.

Register and pay online at on or before Sept. 20. Or to register, mail the following information: Individual shooter’s name, his/her shirt size (S, M, L, XL, 2XL or 3XL), type of ammunition (12- or 20-gauge) and his/her phone number or the name of each member of a four-member team, each team member’s shirt size (S, M, L, XL, 2XL or 3XL) and type of ammunition (12- or 20-gauge) and the name of the team’s contact person and the contact person’s phone number. Make checks payable to Mill Cove, Inc. and mail with the registration information to 54 S Main St., Mansfield, PA 16933 so it arrives before Sept. 20.
