Fishing Derby

It was a good Father's Day at the club. We were able to get back to some normalcy and have the kids derby this year. We had 60 kids registered and about 170 fish caught! A great time was had by all! I would especially like to thank my fellow board members who stepped up and helped me. I would also like to give a big thanks to the Leslie families for all they do and all the volunteers who helped out. A big thank you to Rich's lock and key for donating prizes and helping weigh fish. It is a special day when you can see the joy of the kids fishing with their family on this day. It is the club giving back to the members. Hope everyone enjoys this summer at the club and I look forward to having a bigger and better kids derby next year!
