This is the perfect opportunity to introduce youngsters to the benefits of fishing and for union members to give back to the community by leading the way by teaching the next generation how to safely enjoy and respect Wisconsin’s natural resources and outdoors. Each registered child will receive a fishing pole courtesy of the Building Trades Councils and game call courtesy of Plano Synergy.

This event is free and open to the public but limited to the first 100 or 150 kids so be sure to pre-register. All participants must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or chaperon. After the fishing, be sure to stick around for a picnic-style lunch.

Grab your camera and your kids and get ready for a fun day on the water.

In Solidarity,

Phil Neuenfeldt, President
