Bass tour­na­ment to re­mem­ber late friend of the Fundy coast­line

The Citizen-Record (Cumberland) - - CUMBERLAND COUNTY - Gail Wagstaff

We re­ceived a lit­tle rain this past week­end, which should help to re­duce the fire risk and green up the lawns a bit.

On a cou­ple of morn­ings there was even a hint of fall in the air. My thanks goes out to all of the work­ers who gave their time to hold the FPW Fire­mens’ Field day. An in­cred­i­ble amount of work goes into this event each year. Sheila MacLel­lan won the bar­be­cue, do­nated by Har­risons’, and Sharon Ben­jamin won the Co-op gift card.

Next year will be the 50th an­niver­sary of the FPW Fire Dept. The vol­un­teer fire­men spend count­less hours to take train­ing cour­ses and are on call for the pro­tec­tion of us all. They serve Fox River, Port Gre­ville and Ward’s Brook proudly and do a great job.

The in­au­gu­ral Wal­ter Lake Me­mo­rial Bass Fish­ing Derby will be held on Sept. 16 at the Fox River beach from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Reg­is­tra­tion will be at Wal­ter’s cot­tage. The en­try fee will be $10 per per­son and there will be two cat­e­gories for cash and tro­phy prizes: Se­nior and Ju­nior (un­der 16). Food and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able and bait and tackle will be there for pur­chase. I will find out from Troy the reg­is­tra­tion time and post later in my news. This event will be a last­ing trib­ute to Wal­ter, who was a master fish­er­man and friend to all. All pro­ceeds will be do­nated to The Age of Sail Mu­seum.

The Foxy Lady is out of news for now.

Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
