UCA will host its first ever Wild Game Supper Feb. 2 from 6 to 8 pm @UCA Middle School. Along with the meal, there will be a guest speaker from Backcountry Hunters and Anglers as well as a draw down raffle for several prizes throughout the evening. All of the proceeds from the evening will go to support the hunter safety and trades programs at UCA Middle in their endeavor to build a handicapped accessible hunting blind that will be donated to the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. On our March flex day, our classes will be delivering the blind to the Uwharrie National Forest Game Land and assembling it. Tickets are on sale now for $10 at each school. Come out and support a great cause! Contact JD Goodwin with any questions. email@example.com
