Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.
– Albert Einstein

We've enjoyed a year of celebration with the 75th Anniversary of our club and it's because of the support and participation from our membership.  The new year ahead promises to be one of change and growth, on many levels; we hope that, all combined, it will be a better year for everyone.

May I extend my wishes, and that of our Executive Officers and Board of Directors, for a Happy, Healthy, 2024!

Rest easy...

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Kent Rod & Gun Club and, with that, a reminder that our club and its membership have been part of the Kent community since 1948.

For our club, it's all!  Reaching out and lending support when needed, not just to our membership but to those organizations who do the same for all Kent residents.  

This past March, our Kent Police Department dealt with the devastating loss of two of their K-9 Officers, Raven and Maverick, within three days of each other.  To state that this was heartbreaking is an understatement, especially for Sgt. Ashe and Sgt. VanderWoude of the Kent Police Department, both who were companions and family to both dogs.

During his career, K-9 Radar, known for having a gentle side and gentle heart, apprehended felons, recovered narcotics and reunited loved ones with their families.  K-9 Maverick, along with K-9 Radar, assisted the Kent Police, and surrounding communities, with locating stolen property, tracking missing children, criminal suspects and detecting narcotics.  When K-9 Maverick wasn't on patrol, his joy was being with his family.

Our club, and its membership, recently sent a donation in support of the Town of Kent Police Department's K-9 Unit.  It is our hope that others will do the same so that our police department can continue their service and commitment to our Kent community.

Rest easy, Radar and Maverick.  Thank you for your service.

2023 - A year of Celebration!


“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”

As we look over our shoulders, leaving 2022 behind, our attention turns to the road ahead and the start of a new year.  Almost like a fresh start, a new year holds a special magic, with a promise of new opportunities and possibilities to make positive changes in our lives. 

2023 is a very special year for the Kent Rod & Gun Club as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary as a sportsman's club. In this span of time, we've enjoyed so much positive growth, all thanks to the support of our membership.

As the quote reads on this post, we plan to bring events and more to this new year and we will celebrate our commitment in continuing to be an integral part of our community.

Happy, Healthy, New Year!
