E mails sent Sir,
It is appalling that your towns Fire Department is hosting an event that encourages killing of anything.
Firemen are looked at as " life savers" not killers ,I have friends that are Fireman in Phila . Pa and many of the guys have expressed a real dislike of what your town is promoting.
With the Children killed not that far from us , the fire fighters that were just killed in NY , we need to try and "soften things" as opposed to condoning any violence or killing, especially by kids /teens.

Please reconsider supporting the event and ask the Fire Department to find another way to raise funds.
The world is now watching your town , I have seen posts coming in from all over the our Country also from England , Ireland , Germany, Sweden and even as far as Israel .

Wouldn't your towns image fair better as one of compassion and not violent?

One of your own resident teens posted on a blog " we kill squirrels because theres not much else to do in Holley " . Thats sad, what ever happened to reading, Sculpture, Drawing and other arts?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please consider asking for the sad event " squirrel slam" to be canceled.

Cant wait till one of these gun nuts kills another one. Hope its not one of the kids out hunting. Either way, improves the gene pool.

No it will be some left winger that goes on another shooting spree. These guys in Holley are sane people doing a sane thing.
