Planning begins for Kids’ Fishing Derby of June 2-3

Preparation has already begun for the 29th annual Kids’ Fishing Derby on June 2-3 at Lampe Park.

Sponsorships and donations are being accepted for the event, which attracted more than 1,200 girls and boys 3 to 12 years of age. There is no cost for children to participate in the derby, which operates as a 501(c)3 organization with a board of directors.

“The success of our last 28 years is due largely to the outstanding support we have received from the community,” noted board president Tyler Creel.

Every participant receives a gift and is eligible for prizes that are awarded for the largest fish caught in each of the seven sessions held over two days and for every tagged fish caught.

Contact Steve Hamilton, the organization’s fundraising/sponsorship chairman, at for more information.
