Rotary Club's Annual Fishing Derby

Rotary Club of Huntingdon Valley and Southamptom, PA held it's annual Fishing Derby April 27, 2002 at the SEPTA railroad bridge on Terwood Road and Welsh Road on the Pennypack Creek in Huntingdon Valley, PA.

Our TU Chapter also annually helps out with the derby by interacting with the youngsters and their parents and by just being there to answer questions and untangle the fishing lines. We had six members there; Joe Veasy, Mark Munn, Joe Bradley and Shawn Lees, Paul Stahl and Walt Kononenko. Quite a number of stocked rainbow and brook trout were taken, a good number by the youngsters. It was a perfect weekend day.
