Donations of tackle and yard sale make the magic happen
One of the coolest events in the area is the Russell Gilbert Free Fishing Day held at the Mill Pond in White Cloud. If you have ever witnessed this extraordinary extravaganza no explanation is necessary but if you have somehow missed this one it is perhaps one of the prime examples of what happens when a community comes together for a good cause.
The Gilbert clan and their many volunteers do it right and provide a little angling magic to all comers.
So donate a little tackle, hit up the yard sale this Friday and Saturday or maybe toss a little money their way.
And if you want to witness a slew of kids having the time of their life?
See you there on June 5th.
Here is some info on donating from one of the organizers, Diane Patrick
The Russell Gilbert Kids Free Fishing has asked businesses to volunteer by placing an empty tackle box in their place of business to allow customers to donate new tackle to help fill the box. Once filled they will become prizes for the event which is being held June 5.
The response has been more than I can even imagine.
The following businesses now have boxes until mid May.
