Singer, songwriter author and outdoorsman Steve Chapman will share stories of his life as the featured speaker at a March 12 outdoorsman event at the Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Landenberg.

Sponsored by the CLC Outdoorsman Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing fun and fellowship for outdoor sports enthusiasts, the event will also include raffles, display vendors, door prizes, a silent auction and a covered dish dinner supplied by those in attendance.

A popular speaker and performer at outdoorsman events around the U.S., Chapman is the author of the best-selling book A Look At Life From A Deer Stand: Hunting For The Meaning of Life – which has sold over 300,000 copies – as well as Another Look At Life From the Deer Stand; A Hunter Sets His Sights; Great Hunting Stories; With God On A Deer Hunt, With Dad on a Deer Stand and Tales Hunters Tell.

“I began hunting in my early teens and I see it as an effective and adventurous way of gleaning a great source of food, but hunting has become much more than that to me,” Chapman wrote. “Years ago, I discovered that not only can hunting yield nourishment for the body; there is also food for the soul and spirit that can be gleaned in the fields and woods. I call these finds, ‘the harvest of truths.’

“The life-changing and character-building insights I’ve encountered while outdoors are the greater trophies that hang on the wall of my heart. It is these discoveries that fill the pages of my books.”

CLC Outdoorsman Group leader Steve Shuster said that the upcoming dinner will serve as a homecoming of sorts for local outdoor sports enthusiasts, who saw the cancellation of the group’s events in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

“We are very excited to be hosting this year’s event,” Shuster said. “We see it as a great opportunity to connect and fellowship in community with one another.”

While there is no admission fee for the March 12 event, those in attendance are encouraged to make a donation and bring a covered dish.
