Reelin’ in New Memories June 27th

Monday, June 11, 2018 | by Trisha Willham |


We’re fishin’ for some Washburn and Barron County residents with early stage memory loss who want to share their favorite fishing stories and get their line wet! 

Can we lure you in with a fish (and potato) fry too? 

Motor on over to the Veteran’s Park in Spooner on Wednesday, June 27th, from 11a.m-1p.m. for a boatload of fun, hosted by the Aging and Disability Center, Friends Into Spooner Hatchery and Faith in Action.    

Local anglers will be available, equipment is provided and you can leave your license at home for the event.  Just bring a photo (if you have one) of your favorite “catch” OR bring your best story of the one that got away.  We’ll fall for your stories hook, line and sinker!  And we’ll match you with a Faith in Action volunteer Fishing Buddy!

Space is limited, so make sure to contact Trisha Witham at 1-888-538-3031 or trisha.witham@co.barron.wi.us to register. 

Don’t let this one get away!
