Fishing Derby sponsors needed

Our annual Fishing Derby will be held this year on Saturday, April 23, 2016.  This event is hosted annually by the South Grey Hunters for children under the age of thirteen.  We are happy to report that we had over 200 enthusiastic participants out fishing last year at Grounds Effects Landscapes Pond.

All children who participated received a doughnut when they initially signed up and hotdogs, hamburgers and pop to fill them up after their fishing adventure.  The biggest hit of the event was when each child had the opportunity to choose a prize from a wide variety of donated gifts to reward them for a job well done.  Without the wonderful generosity from last year’s sponsors, the day would not have been possible or as successful.

Once again, we are reaching out to local businesses and organizations that would be willing to make donations to help make this year’s Fishing Derby even better than the last.  We are in need of contributions to help cover the costs of fish, food and prizes to help make it a great day for the kids.  All of our sponsors will be posted on signage around the event in a gesture of our appreciation.

We hope that you will be interested in becoming a sponsor this year, and look forward to hearing from you.  Please call the derby chairperson at the phone number below, should you have any questions, or require arrangements for dropping off or picking up your donation.

Thank you in advance!
