The 2016 Father’s Day Fishing Derby was a huge success!
June 19th was a beautiful day and many families came to enjoy Pondside Park and try their luck fishing.
This year there were ~ 40 children participating in the noon-2pm event.
The largest fish reeled in was a 26″ carp. Bluegill and bass were also caught. (** Please know that the pond is NOT stocked– these fish all live here).
Thank you to HP Recreation Committee members Paul Baly, Tom Gleason, and Megan Dippolito, who ran the event and handed out bait & prizes.
Thank you to Boy Scout Troop 616, with troop leaders Ralph Bucceroni and Jim Pankauski, who were at the Derby selling refreshments and helping where ever needed.
And thank you Megan for the photos!
