2017 Event Recap

We had a terrific event with 43 of the 45 special kids attending, 44 boat captains took the kids out fishing for the morning and then we fed a total of about 250 folks a delicious hamburger/hot dog luncheon.  About half of the kids caught fish and there were some nice big ones too. The sun was warm, but there was a gentle breeze off the water that made it feel wonderful. The volunteers make this event special for the kids and their families.
