Joseph’s Journey Annual Fishing Derby
June 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Volunteers are needed! This is probably one of the most gratifying events that our Chapter sponsors. No one ever regrets helping out at this outing.
Joseph’s Journey is a make-a-wish type organization that offers a day away from the hospital for children who are critically ill accompanied by their families. Our event is a fishing derby that takes place at lake Lehow, near Chatfield Reservoir and Waterton Canyon. CPW stocks the lake in advance of the derby to ensure the young anglers have a great day. They are provided with a rod and reel. Our job is to help them with whatever they need: casting, setting a hook, landing the fish and releasing it. For that you will need to bring along a nipper, forceps and a net.
We also provide lunch and snack for everyone who shows up. This includes hamburgers, brats, hotdogs, chips, fruit etc etc. We need volunteers to help cook.
