S.O.N.S. Take Vets Out Fishing

For six years in a row the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie has provided a 8 free fishing trip to some of our local veterans. We provided sign-up sheets at shows and other events throughout the year. Over 400 signed up. We were able to take about 220 vets out on the boats during the 8 trips. Donations from many of our local social clubs, especially various VFW and American Legion clubs make help make our veterans’ fishing trips possible.

This year the trips (2 trips per day) were on the Edward John   July 24 Aug 22 and                                                       on the Perch Pirate July 18 Aug 15. Bad weather caused the cancellation of the afternoon trip on July 24th so it was rescheduled for August 14th.

Fishing was a bit slow on most of the trips but the comradery was good.

When asked, the veterans all raved about the great time that they had. S.O.N.S. volunteers who were also vets went along to help. A lunch was provided and the participants were given a commemorative T shirt.

VETERANS-- THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!
