Letters to the Editor

Fishing derby drew about 100 particpants | Letter

Editor,

The Oak Harbor Yacht Club Buccaneers would like to thank all the local businesses and community partners who contributed to the 34th Annual Kids’ Fishing Derby.

This special event has become an Oak Harbor community tradition, enjoyed by local families and kids at the Oak Harbor Marina and the Oak Harbor Yacht Club.

This year, the Buccaneers registered nearly 100 kids in the Fishing Derby and hosted their family members and friends to a free picnic lunch and awards presentation at the Oak Harbor Yacht Club.

We are very proud to say that everyone got a free lunch and that no child left without a grand prize or gift bag.

Each year, the Buccaneers ask our hometown businesses to participate as event sponsors by contributing “age appropriate” prizes for boys and girls up to age 12, and the business community responds with great generosity.

Thank you, Oak Harbor, for helping the Buccaneers bring a day of joy to our local children and their families.
