Fulton County Sportsmen Club to host second annual chicken dinner

Staff Report

The Fulton County Sportsmen Club will hold its second annual chicken dinner at its clubhouse on Sunday, Sept. 25 from 11:30 a.m. until all meals have been sold.

Located at 7700 County Road 14, the clubhouse lies just north of the Wauseon Walmart, and club members welcome the public to the dinner.

According to Greg Ruger, president of the club, the chicken dinner proceeds will benefit the many youth activities sponsored by the organization.

“We want to promote and sponsor outdoor activities for every age, but we feel it is extremely important to get our kids involved in hunting, fishing, and all other outdoor sports,” he said. “Some of the youth events we sponsor include the FFA Trap Shoot involving the schools in Fulton County, free hunter’s education classes for youth, and our annual Kid’s Fun Day.”

Mary and Ed Gajdostik’s Famous Fried Chicken will be featured at the chicken dinner. Sides for the dinner include mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, carrots, cole slaw, rolls, desserts and a drink.

Dinners will cost $8, and people are welcome to eat in the clubhouse. However, carryout service will also be available.

“We hope to earn more proceeds this year than last year so we may continue to offer our youth programs,” said Ruger. “Last year the club had 100 chickens to serve the public, and the group raised $700 for their various programs.
