2016 Event Recap:

Beautiful, sunny weather with no wind and a high of 72 greeted the 43 participants and their families as they arrived for the C.A.S.T. for Kids event on Hagg Lake to fish with the 36 volunteer boat captains. The fishing was good with a wide variety of fish caught, only 3 kids were unable to land a fish. Tons of shore volunteers helped make this a very smooth event. This was the 17th annual C.A.S.T. for Kids on Hagg Lake, and probably the best yet!

A Mom’s Thanks (after 2013 event):

“I am writing about the event that took place at Hagg Lake in Oregon! My son is 15 and he has Autism and he does not do very well in certain outside activities but he goes to this event every year and has the best time in the world! He was smiling all day long! Capt. John was amazing with him, patient, loving and kind, something my son does not get from people that do not know him! Usually when we get home from going to town he is frazzled because of all the sounds, people and lights but that day he came home relaxed, smiling and just loving life! I wish that he was like this all the time so he would not have to suffer so much! I just wanted to thank you for everything that you all did for the kids on that day! Its a very beautiful thing that you do for them and their families! I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You all ROCK in my book!”
