HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Early Bird Kiwanis Club announced a gift of $1,000 to the Hannibal area shooter education program at their Feb. 16 meeting. 

The donation was awarded from the Roy Dietle Memorial Fund to provide continued support of this program, a program that Roy Dietle had a passion for. Travis Moore, coordinator for the Hannibal area shooter education program, was the guest speaker at the meeting. 

The shooter education program is for people up to the age of 18 or graduation from high school.  The program teaches youths the proper use and handling of a BB gun, which also teaches them the proper handling and use of a rifles or shotguns. The program runs from November through the end of February. 

Dietle was a longtime supporter and volunteer for this program. He brought Trinity Tutor to the meeting to share her 10 years’ experience in this program.  Tutor has aged out of the program and is now teaching younger youths and being a mentor to others in the program. 

The Hannibal Early Bird Kiwanis Club has been a long-time supporter of this youth program. The motto for the club is “Young Children: Priority One.”
