Kids’ Free Fishing 2015 date Announced!
Kids Free Fishing Day has hosted an average of 500 kids and their families for the past the eight years and brought together a number of partners and volunteers. “This effort is an important part of Rotary Camps & Services Water Committee, which is committed to stewardship of water resources in northern Michigan”, said Pete Strom, chairperson of the Water Committee. “Since the beginning of the event, we have hosted thousands of kids and their families. It takes a year of planning and 50-plus volunteers to run the event. We evaluated quite a few sites in and around town, but each had limitations, so the committee decided to take a year hiatus.” One big expense will be constructing a net to enclose the area at reconstructed NMC harbor; the committee will be actively fundraising to support the net fabrication. Kids Free Fishing Day will return in June 20, 2015.
