If we didn't say "thank you" enough to everyone who, before-during-and-after the event, helped to make this another great day for the kids... Thank you! Sincerely, "THANK YOU!!" Even among the volunteers there are stories... life events or influences that drive you to help others and to make a difference in kids' lives. You are so very much appreciated!
Thanks to everyone who pre-registered! We have assigned kids to boats/pontoons, planned for food, and put in a special request for nice weather... did we forget anything?!?
If YOUR plans have changed and you now know you cannot attend this year's fishing derby, please let us know as soon as possible; otherwise, we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
Remember your fishing licenses! Wisconsin is a great state to fish! Kids 15 and under fish free every day, so do anglers born before 1927 and active duty military on furlough or leave who are Wisconsin residents. For everybody else, a variety of license options can get you out on the water quickly, easily and at a bargain price including one-day licenses or first-time licenses, etc. For more information, visit the DNR website:
Thanks to all who have registered for this year's fishing derby! We are now busy assigning fisher-kids to boats and pontoons. When you arrive at The Lagoon on Saturday morning, check in, grab your gear, get matched up with your boat/pontoon driver, and go fishing!
Register your kids today to help us plan for another successful day on the water! (Registrations after today will be placed on a waiting list for space in a fishing boat or on a pontoon.) Thank you for doing what you can to "Keep Kids Fishin'!"
Register online today OR print/mail the registration form by clicking on the tabs above.
