3rd Annual Striped Bass derby

The Derby is still asking for sponsors, so if you or someone you know wants to help out just contact Keith Julian.
We are also looking for more volunteers.

So lets all meet on the river bank in Stewiacke for a fun.
Bring yourself, your family and friends.

For additional information contact Keith Julian at 805-0145, 758-3574 or [email protected]

Thanks. Keith Julian
