ARGC would like to thank Brandy Hanusosky, for coordinating another great Kids Fishing Derby. All the kids went home with a gift today. Thanks to Barry Palmer and the 223 ARGC Venture Crew for helping out today and to all of our ARGC members who came out today in the sweltering heat to measure and count fish, help bait hooks for those that don't like to touch worms, for untangling fishing lines, unhooking fish and cooking and cleaning up after 60 kids. ARGC cant do it with out your dedication.

We hope to see everyone again next year!!!
