Scenes from this Year's Club Picnic


2022 Club Picnic

More than 200 Mill Creek Rifle Club members, along with an estimated 70 family members, and 60 or more invited guests gathered on September 10 for the largest club picnic attendance in recent history.

The annual Picnic and Swap-N-Shop began at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept 10, in the Pavilion with a flag presentation honor guard by the local Boy Scouts of America Troop 459. Members and guests met to show family members and friends what Mill Creek Rifle Club is all about, as well as meet with fellow members.

This year's event included a tribute to the diverse youth shooting programs that are working through Mill Creek to advance the future of shooting, featuring the Boy Scouts of America, the Johnson County 4-H Shooting Sports program, the Scholastic Action Shooting Program KC Steel Raiders, and the Kaw Valley Junior Rifle Program.
