On the opening day of Trout Season in Pennsylvania volunteers from the Knights of Columbus, Stroud Township, and the Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited organized the annual Children's Fishing Contest on the pond at Brodhead Creek Park in Stroudsburg Pennsylvania.
Volunteers organized the prizes, set up goody-bags for the children, provided traffic control, registration, event coordination, and on the water assistance during the contest. Over 125 children participated in the contest and the day turned out to be beautiful after a foggy start. The fish were cooperative and the majority of the children walked away with a prize. A local car dealership, Ertle Subaru, provided snacks for the particpants, parents, and volunteers.
