11th Annual American Legion/Town of Henrietta Youth Fishing Derby was held Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 7 am to 10:30 am at the Buyck Pavilion at Martin Road Park. There were approximately 90 people, mostly children, participating. Mothers and fathers brought their children to teach them how to fish. There were 7 and 8 pound catfish, 3 pound bass, Sunnies, Blue Gills, and a whole lot of smiles of amazement and wonder.
What it is all about
The Derby was originally conceived by Eddy Auer, who coordinated the event until 2013 when he stepped aside and let “new blood” take it over. It has been a huge hit and it will continue.
