The 3rd Annual Host a Veteran Fishing Derby on June 15th 2013 is a wonderful opportunity to show Military Veterans you ‘Salute their Service to Canada’. “Our Veterans wrote a blank cheque for up to and including their lives”, says Oakville’s Veteran, Lieutenant- Colonel Guy Smith, organizer of the 2013 Veteran’s Fishing Derby. Guy Smith has a passion: “To have people understand that there are “Heros in Our Midst!” – to ensure that our Canadian Forces Military Veterans are honoured and that their families are cared for.”
There are numerous ways to participate in the Annual Host a Veteran Fishing Derby. Anglers can either sponsor, or take out Veterans to fish for the numerous feisty Salmon that lurk in Lake Ontario and enjoy a morning of camaraderie. The Veteran Fishing Derby organizers are also collecting donations, helping to raise much needed funds for our local Military Family Resource Centre which provides assistance programs for Military members and their families. What a great cause!
