To: Ron Gray,
The 2015 Kids Spring Fishing Clinics were a huge success! When I called around to get the attendance numbers the response I got from everyone was “ everything went well, we had a great time”! For the first time in a long time we had beautiful weather. And for the most part, the fish cooperated too.
Even though we had one less park this year (Kohler Andrae is having theirs on June 6th ) ( there will also be clinics on Pucketts and Washington Park that day), we still had almost 700 more kids than last year. This year’s totals were 1,690 kids and 248 volunteers!
Thank you to everyone that made this happen. Special thanks to the tireless dedication of the volunteers from the local fishing clubs that make it all possible.
Ron, please circulate this to all the volunteers. It’s very satisfying when everything comes together.
