We need your help to make this event a success! Volunteers are needed to help participants with their fishing equipment, bait the fishing hooks, and encourage their efforts. All equipment will be provided.

Volunteers should plan to be at Bleyer Lake from 8:30 a.m.–2:00 p.m. The participants from Southern Illinois schools and sheltered workshops will begin arriving at 9:00 a.m.
