Saturday, June 18th, Doric Lodge 319 will be hosting a Kids Fishing Derby from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the East Pavilion in Sunset Marina located along the Illinois side of the Mississippi River at the end of 31st Avenue in Rock Island. This year’s event will be dedicated to the memory of Robert Ivan Hines and Max Dean Wright. Both men were life-long fishing enthusiasts and loved what this event does for our community.
This 5th Annual Kids Fishing Derby welcomes children of all ages and their family members to participate in this event at no charge.All you need is a fishing pole and the rest of it will be provided at the event. Matt Hines, Doric Lodge 319 member says, “This is a great way to get outside and create some life-long memories with your kids.”
Not only does fishing bring the community together, but in this case, it is also dedicated to a wonderful cause. All donations from the Kids Fishing Derby will go to the Shriners Hospital for Children.
