Free JAKES Day event open to kids

The Tygart Valley Chapter of National Wild Turkey Federation will host their annual JAKES Day June 28. This free event is open to children ages 17 and younger and offers kids learning stations throughout the day.

This year stations will include fishing, air rifle shooting, skeet shooting, snakes and much more.

This event is sponsored by the Tygart Valley Chapter of NWTF, but also has help from many members of the Mountaineer Chapter of Izaak Walton League of America, who provide a free lunch for all attending, along with their beautiful property for this fun-filled day.

The Mountaineer Chapter of Izaak Walton League clubhouse is located approximately 6 miles straight up Files Creek Road in Beverly. There will be signs posted to follow.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. with the events starting at 9 a.m. A drawing for prizes will be conducted at the end of the day, and kids must have registered by 9 a.m. and be present to win.

Bring your kids, grandkids and neighbor’s kids and come spend the day in the outdoors.

You may want to bring sunscreen and an extra pair of shoes, too.
