KIWANIS FISHING TAKE A KID FISHING

“A REAL FAMILY EVENT”

On Saturday, June 04, 2016 the Kiwanis Club of Vero Treasure Coast hosted the annual Take a Kid Fishing Event under the Barber Bridge in Vero Beach.  For well over 20 years, the Kiwanis Club has welcomed hundreds of children and families to this annual event.  This year, we had 200 youth ages 5-12 plus and equal numbers of parents enjoy several hours of fishing.  Rods, reels, and bait were provided to each participant at no cost.  After fishing, families were treated to lunch.  Prizes were awarded for a variety of classifications such as largest fish, smallest fish and ugliest fish.

Take a Kid Fishing Co-Chairs Jim Wolfe and Al Sammartino, both long time Kiwanis members, did a great job in coordinating and planning all the details.  Another 20 Kiwanis members helped to distribute equipment, remove and measure fish from children’s lines, offer encouragement, and later serve lunches.  Registration volunteers started early at 7:00 a.m.  Jim Wolfe said “This is such a special family event. To see mom’s and dad’s join in the fun together with the children makes this so meaningful.  Smiles are everywhere.”  Co-Chair Al Sammartino seconded Jim’s comments by stating “I have so much fun at this event.  The excitement of watching young children catching a first fish is priceless.  Kiwanis has found this event draws families so close.”

Joining in on the fun this year was Kiwanis Lt. Governor, Jim Vensel.  Jim represents four counties of Kiwanis Clubs.  Jim stated “In all the events we host throughout the region, this one is one of the best and all about the family.  I look forward to sharing its success with Kiwanis International.”
