“It was just great to see so many kids with challenges coming out, trying their best and feeling excited about catching a fish! I thought the other volunteers were incredibly supportive and loving toward the kids, which is so important for the kids and the families.” – Shore Volunteer, Saugatuck River
“The mentors were extremely patient and kind while teaching my son to fish. They were super excited when he caught several fish. I loved the awards ceremony and group photos, it made all attendees feel welcome and successful.” – Parent of Participant, Saugatuck River
