Folsom Boy Scout Troop 1855, a 2014 grant recipient, received $8,356.35 in grant money. The troop’s grant consisting of shot guns, clay targets, target thrower, ammunition, hearing and eye protection and other sundry items greatly needed for the troop of 25-plus scouts of various ages starting at 12 years old to teenagers working toward the rank of Eagle Scout.
Seeing a need for help, Rich Horn, a detective with the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, took on the task of researching and writing the grant for the troop. Showing true dedication to the Boy Scout organization, Det. Horn wrote a second successful grant request for the El Dorado Sheriff Explorer Post 457 program for $9,624.00. The Sheriff Explorer Program is also sanctioned under the Boy Scouts of America.
“We spend considerable time raising funds for the NRA Foundation each year,” said Chuck Holland, chairman of the Placerville Friends of NRA group. “It makes us extremely proud to see such a dedicated hard worker like Det. Horn take on the task of securing grant funds for our local youth programs. Det. Horn is known for his integrity, dedication and hard work; I’d like to encourage others to follow his example this year to benefit our youth.”
