Optimists Want Kids To Fish



We are calling all kids! The Rim Country Optimist Club is having its Sixth Annual Fishing Festival from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 31 at Green Valley Park.

This event is always a great family day for all ages. On this fun day you can be 102 years old and be a “kid.” Just register for free and a fishing license will not be required.

Fishing clinics will be provided to help people begin and/or to improve fishing skills.

Tracey and Theresa Purtee will be there to register and also weigh and measure the fish. KCMA will be on site all day, Ann Hunter, photographer, will be available to take pictures and John Wisner will be doing balloon sculptures.

Members of the Kiwanis and Optimist Clubs will provide food.

The popular silent auction and raffle will include a fishing trip, various fishing items, two bikes, and a variety of other items. The silent auction is bigger and better than ever and our newest attraction is going to be a cake walk.

The Optimist Club requests that anyone who wishes to donate a raffle or silent auction item to support this community event or who wishes to purchase raffle tickets to contact Joan Young, (938) 472-2264.
