A special thanks to Mark Munn for allowing this event to take place on his private pond. There were rainbow and brown trout as well as many resident bass and sunfish that were living in the pond to be caught (plus a turtle or 2). In addition special thanks goes out to Denis Mora and his wife. Denis was instrumental in getting the uniformed PA Fish and Boat Commission and PA Game Commission people and resources to participate in this event. Denis is also a PA Conservation Officer. In addition, Denis' wife, Sharon, is a member of the 2-228th Family Support Group, and she was the laiason person in organizing this event. Denis' and his wife's son is presently serving with the unit in Iraq.
The kids and all the grownups had a great time.

What a great event! I am proud of the great job our chapter did and very
proud to be a member. We had at least 18 kids participating. Most had never
fished before. Everyone caught fish. The Family Support Group said it was
the best outing they ever had.
Thank you to all
