Month of Guns

The month of guns is the major fundraiser for the Idaho AFL-CIO Pac Fund, we picked the month of August to award a rifle or shotgun for each day of the month but this year on Friday we have chosen to award a bow two days and a gun safe the other two days plus a 200 dollar draw gift certificate for the sportsman warehouse.

The price of tickets are 20.00 dollars apiece or 100 dollars for a book of 6 tickets or if you want you can get someone to go in on a book and you get 3 tickets for 50 dollars.

You can contact me at the Cold Mills on E Waste Water Schedule or call me at 208-651-1123.
