Oath Keepers schedule Hite Hollow Gun Range clean-Up


newspaperA clean-up at the Hite Hollow Gun Range is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15. Volunteers will meet at the range in Augusta Springs at 9 am.

The U.S. Forest Service will supply equipment, but volunteers are encouraged to bring cordless drills and nail belts, if possible, to handle repair of the rifle and pistol range roofs.

People can bring drinks and covered dishes and we’ll break for food at some point and travel to the home of Louis Painted Pony and his wife, Mary McCaleb.

RSVP, if possible: 540.280-2135

The range will be closed to the public that day and there will be no shooting.

The Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta County chapter of Virginia Oath Keepers is one of the newest chapters. Oath Keepers provides preparatory training and planning exercises, designed to support the community in the event of an emergency, natural disaster or otherwise.

Founded by Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of persons who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Stewart Rhodes is a Yale Law School graduate, teacher of military history at Yale, US Army paratrooper who suffered a disabling injury during a night time parachute jump. Oath Keepers Board of Directors includes an impressive collection of current and former Army, Navy and Marine members, police, and a retired Arizona sheriff.
