The children will be supplied with life jackets, rods, fishing tackle, bait, snacks and cold drinks. Volunteers will be on hand to assist with the loading and launching of the boats. Support boats will be available with additional supplies as needed.
Last year we were able to accommodate many children and family members for a fun day of fishing on the Red River. Thank-you to all the boat operators. The number of participants varies with the weather and the wellness of the children.
If you are able to give us your support as a Boat Operator or Volunteer this year, kindly let me know as soon as possible as it facilitates the organization of the event. If you know of anyone who owns a boat and would like to come aboard, please have them call me.
Thank- you in advance,
