The Governor's Opener Picnic May 9th

Plans continue for the Governor's Fishing Opener picnic May 9th. The event will be held at the Trailside Park in Pequot Lakes the night before the Saturday opener. Organizer Bernice Rhode, says plans are to serve 2,500 to 3,000 a roast turkey sandwich dinner. She tells KLKS, there will be a lot of other activities surrounding the annual event held this year at Breezy Point Resort on Big Pelican Lake. There will be a fish identification program, as well as a casting contest for the kids. Boat builder Crestliner has donated a pontoon boat to help pay for the event. Raffle tickets are available to win the craft. Ms. Rhode says a lot of volunteers are needed for the many events. Those interesting in offering a helping hand are asked to contact the chamber of commerce.

The picnic should be a blast! As a former upper midwest resident in his first year in Florida, I THINK you should be snow-free by then.

SPecial kudos to Crestliner for their generousity in donating that pontoon - terrific community involvement.

Hope lots of money is raised and that everyone has a blast!
