The Mike Valdez Memorial Scholarship Bowshoot held July 19 was a magnificent success. We are blessed to have the most generous community and surrounding area that continuously help us with wonderful donations.

All of our volunteers work very hard before, during and after the bowshoot. This year, we had a recordbreaking amount of participants, including shooters, supporters and volunteers.

With the continued success and expanding growth of the bowshoot every year, we are welcoming anyone who would like to volunteer their time and/or resources to call Leon Valdez at 317-8704.

We have become one big family with everyone. We love you all. We feel Mike is smiling during it all because he believed in education and helping people.

We are looking forward to next year’s event which will be held July 18, 2015. We would also like to express our gratitude to everyone, with special thanks to Dale and Deanna H. and family for donating their time and land to make this event possible.

Valdez, Garcia and House families
