          23rd Annual Kids Day Derby May 6th

 61 Lighthouse Road    St. Catharines


It is time once again for our annual Kids Day Fishing Derby put on by the St. Catharines Game and Fish Association.  This year our 23rd annual derby will be held Saturday, May 6 rain or shine.  We are planning for 500 kids plus their families this year.

Each year we look for volunteers who need community service hours. The students can contact me directly via phone or text at 905-650-1836 or email me at kidsday.scgf@outlook.com

We have many positions to fill.  Some of the needs are BBQ lunch servers, registration, measuring fish, selling tickets, prize booth, computer tallying and lots of other odd jobs.  We need 50 volunteers to run the event. Volunteers please respond by May 1 for planning purposes.

Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017

Start Time: 7:30am

End Time: 2pm to 3pm depending on the job position

Location:  61 Lighthouse Rd.  St. Catharines at the St. Catharines Game and Fish Clubhouse

Volunteers need to dress warmly.  The weather is unpredictable at this time of the year.  Dress in layers which can be removed as the day hopefully warms up.  It is always a lot cooler by the water than it is inland. Jackets, sweaters and pants are a must.

Volunteers will be provided with a BBQ hot dog lunch and drinks.  Pizza at the end of the day.

Students needing their community service sheet signed should bring them the day of the derby.

A volunteer board will be at the event with assignments posted to each person

I will also be on site for the event and can answer any question throughout the day.

Our goal is to make this a really fun experience for the kids.

Thanks for your support,

Janet Melanson
