Trap Shoot Nets $8500 for Festival

Shooters take their stations
The Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival Committee hosted a trap shooting event Saturday, January 23 at the Warren Shooting Sports Complex to raise funds for the Pink Tomato Festival.  The event kicked off with a lunch of grilled chicken donated by Ozark Mountain Poultry with delicious trimmings.  The chicken was cooked by Chamber President David King.
