If you like to fish for walleyes in the Saginaw Bay and have an appreciation for the veterans of the U.S. Armed forces, then you won’t want to miss the 2014 Walleyes for Warriors fishing event that takes place on June 14 &15 at Veterans Memorial Park in Bay City.
This year will mark the forth year for this great event, and the second year that Reder Landscaping has been a sponsor.
WFW is a recreational therapy event that is free to all veterans and active-duty service members. It includes a day of fishing, prizes, food and camaraderie all designed to serve as a “Thank You” to those who have served our country. At last year’s event almost 100 boat captains to over 200 veterans fishing, and over 1,00 pounds of fish were caught!
Proceeds from the Walleyes for Warriors event go to Operation Injured Soldiers, which is a non-profit organization that works with disabled veterans.
For this year’s WFW event, all of the spots for veterans and boat captains have already been filled, but you can still register for the waiting list. Other ways to participate include volunteering for the event, making a donation or “liking” Walleyes for Warriors on Facebook.
