On October 1, 2016 the Pine Valley Gun Club hosted the 2nd Annual Blue Shoot in support of law enforcement across the region. The inaugural event in 2015 supported the Pine Hill Police K9 Unit. The event this year supported the Voorhees Twp. K9 Unit and as with 2015, the event was a great success. Officers from across the county had the opportunity to meet with members of the Pine Valley Gun Club to share stories, experiences and to get to know each other.
Lt. Witts and Sgt. Barrett of the PHPD Honor Guard had the privilege of opening the event with the raising of the Colors. The ceremony had special meaning this year to both the club and longtime member Bonnie Hoffman. Lt. Witts and Sgt. Barrett retired the flag that had flown over the range and presented it to PVGC President, Paul DiMeglio. They had the honor of receiving a flag very special to Mrs. Hoffman; the burial flag of her father, William Cassada who honorably served our Country in the United States Navy. Lt. Witts and Sgt. Barrett raised the burial flag of William Cassada to fly proudly over the members of the Pine Valley Gun Club.
Thank you to all the members of the PVGC for another special event. We look forward to joining you again next year for the 3rd Annual Blue Shoot.
