Despite the weather Sat June 22nd we had 121 kids show up for Jakes Day. Held at Torstenson Youth Conservation Education Center in Pecatonica, IL. We had just a little time for archery, fishing and the conservation trailer but the new education building came in handy when the rain came down. Coloring signs and targets along with face painting and tatoos indoors wasn't the same as shooting the guns but they all had fun and went home with gifts. Additional prizes were given in 2 age groups. The younger winners were: Gabe Eckerd-BB gun, Waylon Hanke-bow, Jay Conner-box call, Bradyn Smith and Olivia Johnson-fishing poles and Trevor Johnson- binoculars. The older winners were: Zachary Bednar- air gun, Gabby DeClerk-Bow, Dylan Watts-box call, Konner Toelke and Anna Johnson-fishing poles. Thank You to Cabela's, Big Johns Boxcalls, Kap Guns, Inc. and Illinois Conservation Foundation for donating these prizes. Thank You also to all the wonderful sponsors, donors and volunteers that helped make this day special to so many. Ken and I couldn't have done it without all of you.
