The Tennessee River Coon Hunters Association will hold a special benefit meat shoot beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday at 167 Fields Road in Lacey’s Spring.

The shoot is just one part of a fundraising event that will last all day. Sgt. Chris Dillard of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, who has served his community for more than 25 years, recently was diagnosed with ALS – just one year before he was set to retire.

“Come out and show your support,” said the association’s Herb Fields, “but most of all keep him and his family in your prayers.”

Corn hole and horseshoes will follow the shoot. The Dry Creek Bluegrass Gospel Band will play at 2:30 p.m. following a Native American ceremony at 1 p.m.

There will be an auction at 6 p.m. and donation of items such as cakes, pies, tools, etc., will he appreciated. Deadline for a PKC Double Hitter coon hunt with a $50 buy-in is at 7 p.m.

One dollar raffle tickets are being sold on a Remington 870 Express 12 gauge.

Food will be served all day. Purchase tickets the day of the event or at Max’s Garage in Lacey’s Spring and also at Family Jewelry & Loan.

For more information, contact: Fields at 256-318-4377; or Shannon Fields Guyse at 251-223-2724.
