Richmond Hill hosts 28th Annual Kids Fishing Derby

The Richmond Hill Exchange Club hosted their 28th Annual Kids Fishing Derby on September 22, at the Richmond Hill Fish Hatchery. The weather was perfect, and attendance was very good, with nearly 250 children participating, accompanied by an equal number of parents or grandparents. The derby was free of charge and open to children ages 15 and under. Over the past twenty seven years, thousands of children have participated, and the Exchange Club is proud to partner with the local DNR and Fish Hatchery staff in this annual event.

Trophies for children 12 and under were awarded for several categories, including Most Total Pounds and Heaviest Fish, within age groups 6 and under, and 7 to 12. The trophies and several door prizes were donated by the Exchange Club of Richmond Hill.
