The Club is sponsoring a food drive again this year and will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items at the clubhouse on Collins Mills Road, West Gardiner on the following days between 9:00AM and 12:00PM:
Sat. April 1
Sat. April 15

Monetary donations can also be made at the clubhouse or at the West Gardiner Town Hall located at 318 Spears Corner Road. (Town Office hours are Mon-Fri
8AM to 1PM and Thursday evenings from 5PM to 8PM.)
Coincidentally, the range will be open to the public during those hours and a donation of food to the drive can get you "on the shooting line". (See additional info below)
The club is pleased to announce that we are, once again, sponsoring a “Lifetime License” for a lucky WGRG CLUB junior member or JOAD member. We will be choosing one winner in each of two categories:
1. age 5 and under
2. ages 6 through 15
The winner will choose either a Hunting or Fishing license.
The winner’s parents may elect to upgrade this to a combination hunting / fishing license by paying the difference in cost.
Applications are available at the club meetings.
The West Gardiner Rod & Gun Club range will be open to the public on the following dates from 9:00AM to 12:00PM.
