PLYMOUTH – The Terryville Fish & Game Club is bringing back its annual turkey hunt on Nov. 14, providing food, fun and camaraderie while supporting the local food pantry.
The Turkey Shoot will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the clubhouse at 21 Grove St., near Middle Pond. After being canceled last year due to the pandemic, Terryville Fish & Game Club Board Director Tony Orsini said he is looking forward to bringing the event back to the community.
“We were looking forward to bringing him back; last year was a terrible year,” he said. “We’ve all been through quite a bit and we’re trying to get back to where things should be. I think people will like it; it’s going to be a fun afternoon. We have great food and great company, so come enjoy the moment.
People will be able to shoot at targets, resembling a bingo card, with a 22 shotgun. Orsini says there will be 20 cards in a relay and at the end of the activity, the winner with the highest score will win. a $20 gift certificate to the Terryville IGA.
“They can use it to get Thanksgiving dinner or whatever they want,” he said.
Plus, refreshments will be served including “Uncle Bill’s New England Clam Chowder” and hot dogs with or without sauerkraut or meat sauce.
The Terryville Fish & Game Club will also be collecting food for the Plymouth Food Pantry. Those attending the Turkey Shoot are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the donation. Collection boxes will be set up at the clubhouse.
In addition to the Turkey Shoot, the Terryville Fish & Game is known for offering home suppers to the community. Earlier this month, on October 10, they offered a pasta dinner with delivery available. The club also sponsors the town’s annual Ice Fishing Derby on Mill Pond.
