WALTHAM — The Waltham-Eastbook Youth Association is holding its sixth season of turkey shoots in October.
The group was formed six years ago to raise funds for various scholarships for students in the two towns, and has given out nearly $10,000 to date.
The primary fundraiser has been the turkey shoots, which are held every Sunday in October at the shooting range located off of Route 200 in Waltham from 10 a.m. until noon.
There are events for .22 rifles, 12- and 20-gauge shotguns and an open category that has seen everything from bows and arrows to hunting caliber rifles.
Shooting is at paper targets, with frozen turkeys going to the winner of each of the 15 events. The local 4-H Club provides refreshments and spectators are always welcome.
