The Pheasants Forever Chapter 630 recently established a fund at the Elk County Community Foundation. This new fund will be used to support the work of the Chapters new Youth Outdoor Committee. The Pheasants Forever Chapter 630 Youth Outdoor Committee plans to provide a safe and quality outdoor oriented adventure for youth with a life-threatening illness or a severely limiting physical condition. The adventure may include various hunting, fishing, or other suitable and available outdoor event or activity. Candidates will be selected from Elk and surrounding counties. The organization is in the start up phases and hopes to raise enough funding to have their first adventure in 2011. Anyone may donate to this fund to help us reach our goal of $100,000. Send check to the Elk County Community Foundation FBO PF Youth Outdoor Fund, 111 Erie Avenue, PO BOX 934, St. Marys, PA 15857.
