2020 Turkey Shoot by Assembly 1083

Updated: Oct 27


The Knight of Columbus Assembly 1083 will be hosting a Turkey Shoot on Saturday, November 14, 2020. Anyone that is able and meets the rules of the event may participate. 100% of the net proceeds will go to the East Tennessee Military Affairs Council HonorAir Knoxville program.


HonorAir Knoxville takes WWII, Korean and Vietnam veterans from East Tennessee to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials built to honor their sacrifice - at no charge to the veteran. No amount of gratitude could ever repay the debt for the gift of democracy veterans gave the world. However, HonorAir Knoxville is dedicated to honoring East Tennessee World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans and the sacrifices they made to ensure our freedoms.
