The YMCA hosted its sixth annual 3-D Archery Shoot on Saturday, April 5. The shoot was at the property of Kurt and Warren Wendlandt of New Holland.

Twenty-two children participated in the event. Each participant had three chances to shoot at a target. Targets included animal decoys such as a deer, bear, groundhog and coyote.

Trophies were handed out for the top three finishers in each age category. T-shirts, certificates and various other prizes were given to all the children.

The Wendlandts catered the event and had hot dogs, s'mores, chips, drinks and desserts for all participants and their families.

Dave Duvall, the YMCA archery instructor, did a wonderful job teaching safety and the proper way to shoot bows and also made it very fun for the kids.

The event was sponsored by Ron Adams of Ron's Towing and James Grimaldi of Grimaldi Law Office.
