Consistent action after 1800.
For the past several years, our Sheboygan Riverside Boat Club, with the help of local captains, has sponsored an event taking area military veterans on a free morning fishing trip. The club sponsors a (public invited) brat fry to feed these veterans upon their return. Our membership has raffles that day with proceeds going to various local veteran organizations.
This year we have 6 captains that cannot participate due to weddings, sold boats and mechanical issues. These captains accounted for taking 23 veterans fishing last year.
Are there any captains that will offer their boats to take veterans fishing on August 20th, from 5 to 10 am? In past years these veterans were so appreciative of the captains that took them. Most do not have the opportunity to fish our waters off Sheboygan. Last year we had 66 veterans participate in our event, we hope to take about the same numbers this year.
Please, please call/text Jim Jellish, (920) 475 – 4488 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can offer your time and boat to take a veteran fishing. I can’t think of anything more worthwhile than to show our appreciation for the sacrifices they made for us and our freedom.
