The Fruitport Conservation Club(FCC), located at 5373 E. Sternberg Rd, continues to grow amidst the community. Boasting a healthy 2017 membership of nearly 800 members. FCC offers two trap fields, a 100 yard rifle and pistol range, and a 3-D archery course. The trap fields are open every Thursday night and the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. Wednesday night Pistol meets weekly from April through October and on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month in January through March. The archery course is open from July through September offering thirty 3-D targets. These events are open to the public.
FCC is much more than just a gun range. We offer CPL classes as well as advanced gun safety courses. We are home to the 4H youth shooting events. February 24th will be our annual youth rabbit and squirrel derby, which gets our local youth involved with hunting and teaches them Hunter ethics and safety.
Our annual fundraiser banquet was held in September, and as always, was a huge success. Thank you to all of our volunteers who make this yearly event possible. Planning for next year‘s banquet has already begun. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.
As FCC continues to grow and thrive as a nonprofit organization, we feel it necessary to give back to our community. This year to date, we have given six scholarships to local, college-bound students totaling $5000. In addition, $5000 was donated to the Village of Fruitport, towards the renovation project at Pomona Park. FCC also purchased new American flags to be flown at the Fruitport public safety building(Airline Rd) and the US 31 and I-96 intersections. Donations were also made for the Make-A-Wish foundation and for two chartered boat trips for our local veterans.
With 2018 just around the corner, FCC will continue to grow and improve.. If you have an interest in becoming a member of our organization or would like to attend any of the scheduled events, visit www.fruitportcc.com or find us on Facebook.
Wishing everyone a safe and successful hunting season and a blessed holiday season, your friends at the Fruitport Conservation Club.
