NICC will be handling the fishing station and we are in need of volunteers to help out. The way this event works is the registrants are divided into 6 groups and each group will visit each of the 6 stations for 45 minutes. So on the top of every hour we will have a new group of 8-16 kid to show them the basics of fishing.
The pond will be set up at is loaded with bluegills so the kids will easily catch fish. I did this event lasts year and it is very rewarding and fun. Please let me know if you are able to help out. If you can only do a part of the day that will be fine.
The event will run from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Lunch will be provided. Spread the word of this event to anyone you think will be interested in participating and again, let me know if you can helpout or have any questions.
