|Take A Kid Fishing 2002
May 23, 2002
ADA--On Saturday, June 1, kids and their parents will meet at the Elks Lodge lake to enjoy a day of fishing.
Local radio station KYKC 100.1 FM has been promoting this event for the last seven years and station manager, Mike Hall, says he hopes the support of local sponsors will continue for many years to come.
“Of all the events taking place in our community, this one is especially touching. It’s a pleasure to see kids with their parents, even grandparents spending quality time together. It could not be happening, though, without the generous support of our sponsors and volunteers,” Hall said.
Chuck Devereaux will also be there to give out fishing instructions and for telling a few fish stories along the way. Devereaux represents Bass Tubs of Oklahoma.
In year’s past, annually hundreds of children and their parents or guardians would converge on Ada’s Wintersmith Park, but this year the event will be held at the Elks Lodge lake. A day of fishing includes bikes for the boy and girl that catches the biggest fish and two more bikes will be given away by a random drawing, along with other prizes. After a morning of fishing, a free lunch is served by the Elks Lodge Ladies Auxiliary with Ada Coca-Cola Bottling Co. providing the drinks.
Pre-registration is at 8 a.m. Fishing starts at 9 a.m. Kids only need to bring a parent or guardian and a fishing pole. Bait is being provided by Bailey’s Outdoor Shop. All children will receive a gift bag. Registration forms are available at the following locations: Wal Mart Sporting Goods Dept.; Bailey’s Outdoor Shop and the studios of KYKC 100.1 FM
This year’s sponsors: Bass Tubs of Oklahoma; Citizens Bank; Bailey’s Outdoor Shop; Ada Family Eye Care; Wal Mart SuperCenter; Chickasaw Nation; Ada Coca-Cola Bottling Co.; Jim York & Associates; Sundowner Sports Arena; Women’s Health Center; Sentinel Financial Services; and First Baptist Church Children’s Ministry.
