Kid’s Fishing 2016 – Floyd Holmes – Director

On Friday May 6th, Bill Papesh and Jerry Harms met at the Ronald McDonald House and rode out to Clear Lake with 15 youngsters who were hoping to catch a big trout. The largest fish caught was 24″and all of the youngsters who accompanied Bill and Jerry caught fish and had a good time. There were 3 youngsters who were unable to attend because of chemo and radiation treatments. Kids_Fishing

On Saturday, May 7th, Bill Papesh, Jim Athearn, Randy Shaber, Dick Odell, and Paul Coopwood showed up at Clear Lake to help with the Kids Fishing Day. This year about 850 to 900 kids showed up for the event and there were a lot of fish caught.

Paul Coopwood also had his two grandsons, Connis and Ryan Ehring, and their mother Beth help-ing out with various jobs. Paul said that Connis was going to use the event as part of his eagle scout merit badge project.

My thanks go to all those who helped out with the two fish outs and I hope that I did not miss any one.
