Calumet Kids Fishing Derby
To the editor:
Our 16th Annual Kids Fishing Derby on July 17 at the Swedetown Pond was a fun time had by all.
181 kids enjoyed catching hundreds of fish with a free Vollwerths hot dog lunch when the fishing ended.
Prizes were awarded to the largest Bluegill, Perch, Bullhead and the smallest fish, and every kid who registered a fish was able to pick a prize.
