Each year our Detroit Area Steelheaders organization hosts a group of “Special Friends” for a day of fun and fishing. This is a social outing where our Steelheaders donate our time entertaining people with special needs as our guests having fun fishing and picnicking on Lake Erie out of Toledo Beach Marina. After fishing, lunch is provided under the big tent where our “Special Friends” socialize and show off their ‘days catch’. The remainder of the event is filled with pictures, prizes, and fun.
DAS sponsors this event as our effort to give back to our community, but its success comes from the experience of our members. Each person who helps knows they are part of a worthwhile cause and the event is sustained because our members keep coming back. Special mention also goes out to Toledo Beach Marina. They donate the use of the marina each year and provide free launch, boat slips, ice and other items to help make this event a success.
There will be a sign-up sheet available at member meetings for anyone who is willing to work with us this year. Can you help us by being a boat captain using your boat to take out a guest participant? Can you be a shore volunteer? Can you donate something for the participants goodie bag? Cash donation to help defray club costs?
See me at any member meeting if you can help in any way. We need your help to make this work. Dan Chisholm 586 530 9171.
