THE SYMBOL OF THE POWDER HORN
Long used by men and women of the frontier as one of the necessary tools for daily life.
The powder horn carried the propellant that allowed him to sustain daily life. The powder horn ranged from the very plain yet functional to the ornate work of art, but the use was the same, a vessel to help sustain. The recipient of the Powder Horn is a vessel—a vessel to help sustain the spirit of the outdoors in our youth of today. The propellant that you carry is the knowledge of new and exciting program ideas to share with these youth.
