Thanks for Kids Fishing Rodeo


I would like to thank the community for the wonderful turnout for our third annual Kid’s Fishing Rodeo.

Both the Ladies Auxiliary and the Men’s Auxiliary to the VFW Post 1388 had another successful day on the canal. Lots of fish were caught, prizes given away, and hot dogs and chips eaten.

I would like to thank Joe Truckey, our chip guy; FOE 2801 for their generous donation; VFW Post 1388 for their generous donation; John Stoner, who always gives us a donation when it is a kid’s event and takes great pictures; Jeff Watson of Watson’s Valero in Millersport for bait; Pam Barr for cookies; the Men’s Auxiliary to VFW Post 1388 and Z’s Bait Shop for lots of things; Steve and Connie Schilling for allowing us to fish off their property; Heath Walmart for a generous donation of fishing poles; and to Jeff Wolfe for working with us.

I would also like to thank Mike Cook, who did just about everything; Tom Ekstine, who is a wonderful shopper; and Rudy Schmidt, Robin Fink, Linda Graves, Dent Dailey, and Donnie Harkins whose help cannot be measured. I would also like to thank Mindy Faulkner, Hannah and Allison who helped give out prizes and take pictures.

We would also like to thank Theresa McClung and her family for letting us hook up to their electric so we could run our PA system. It was truly an awesome community event. We hope to have another one before school starts. Watch for our ads in this paper.

The Ladies Auxiliary is also having a garage sale on Saturday, July 21st. Please call the Post if you have donations of anything but clothing. I will return your call that evening or the next day.

God Bless Our Veterans and God Bless America.
