“Stuff the Bus for the Kids of Fannin County”

Community

Currently, pink and blue paper buses will be on display at various locations in the county (think paper angels at Christmas) with school supplies attached so that people can sponsor students in our area that are not able to afford the necessary supplies. Let’s “Stuff The Bus” for the kids in Fannin County!

S.A.F.E. Kids Fishing Derby Results

Community
What a splendid day May 19 was for all of the families who attended the first annual S.A.F.E. Kids Fishing Derby at Nottely Marina. The parking lot was filled. The sun was shining and the fish were biting. The excitement was evidenced by all who participated.
This was a terrific way to celebrate the ending of the school year. Families enjoyed hot dog meals, on shore fishing games, the playground, and of course the serious fishing Derby.

Joshua Owens caught a Catfish and here he is holding his Carp.

A total of eight prizes were awarded including the top Four Largest Fish caught. Joshua Owens came in First Place by catching a 17 1/2″ 34.5 oz Carp. For his win, Joshua received a free half day fishing charter for one adult and two kids. This charter was provided by Jeremy Seabolt at Lake Nottely Fishing Charter.

Katryn Mason Placed Second, Ava Irwin, Came in Third Place, and Lindsey Hammond Placed 4th Place. The top four largest fish winners also received fishing rods and fishing gear which were provided by our
generous sponsors.
Karson Wester won the Tiniest Fish; Joshua Owens, won the First Catch of the Day, a Catfish; Cayden Cunningham caught the Ugliest Fish, and Ava Irwin caught the Prettiest Fish.
