Hunting and Fishing With the Kids in Forsyth County

On September 23, 2017,  the Forsyth-Cumming Optimist Club participated in the National Hunting and Fishing Event that is hosted by Kiwanis along with a host of other sponsors in the community.  Our Club has been participating and playing an intricate role in the event for numerous years.
The Buford Hatchery stocks the river below the Dam with over 2,500 Rainbow Trout just before the event begins in the morning.  Our club supplies bait and rods.  Fly tying, fishing demonstrations and volunteers are available to bait hooks and removing fish.  Hot Dogs and snacks were provided at no charge.
Attached is a picture of some of our esteemed Optimists showing off our new t-shirt that says “I’m with the Optimists”.  Kids were provided an Optimist T-Shirt free of Charge.
