We are back into the swing of things after a fun filled fishing derby. We lucked out with incredible weather and a great turn out. Cameron Howe won medals for the first fish, the most fish, and the smallest fish! Laken Weber won a medal for the biggest fish! Congratulations to the two winners and to all the kids that came out and fished their hearts out! It was amazing for us to see the smiles on the families’ faces. Putting on these events takes more than just our office to achieve. We want to thank Gordon’s Guns, The Herbal Emporium, L&J Tires, the LIFE program through USD 487 and First Choice Meats. Their commitment to helping our communities flourish is what keeps us going and we are proud to have them!
