KIWANIS TAKE A KID FISHING INFORMATION Saturday, May 11, 2019
The 2019 Kiwanis Take a Kid Fishing Event is Saturday, May 11th under the Barber Bridge in Vero Beach. The tournament is for children ages 5-12 in Indian River County. Adult supervision is required. Prior to the event, children within the school district will receive information about registration. Special thanks to Minuteman Press for donating all printing costs. We encourage you to click on the Event section of the website that will take you to the Take a Kid Fishing page. This includes the registration application, pre-registration locations, and all event details. Once again Jim Wolfe has stepped forward to chair the tournament and is supported by a large cast of fellow Kiwanis members. For questions about the event, call Jim at 772.299.1819. The day provides a great outlet for families to be together. For the Kiwanis members it means a lot of fun and laughs trying to get things prepared on time and make certain we have the supplies (bait, tackle, snacks, and fishing poles). It gives us a chance too, to see the excitement and anticipation in the eyes of the children we serve in the community. We are thankful to be able to celebrate the beauty of nature that is afforded us in tropical, sunny Vero Beach, Florida. To incorporate the natural environment of the ocean and marine life into a day of action and participation for the children of Vero Beach and surrounding area, makes us all very, very happy.
