As of inclusion of the new member class scheduled for induction at the next member meeting, August 1, Mill Creek will once again have reached membership capacity.

Above and Beyond introduction

New Feature: Above and Beyond the Call

If you're a new member or you've been to a new member induction, you've heard Mill Creek President Mike McGovern say this: Yes, Mill Creek Rifle Club features some of the premiere outdoor shooting facilities in this region, no doubt. But that's only a fringe benefit of club membership. The real benefit of being a Mill Creek member is induction into a community of thousands of shooting enthusiasts who not only share a passion and affinity for the sport, but also who share a brotherhood of service to one another and a spirit of volunteerism that rivals any.

This new feature, Above and Beyond the Call of Duty, salutes those members and other individuals who best exemplify that spirit of devotion to their community, their fellow members, and their nation. This month's installment features a much-needed clubhouse clean-up, a shaky stair repair, and the return of a very missed lost rifle.
