Volunteers, boats sought for vets fishing outing

    Boats and volunteers are being sought to help with the 46th annual Disabled Vets Fish Outing.
    Donations of fish and homemade cookies and bars are also needed for the event, which will be held Wednesday, June 19.
    Area fishermen take roughly 100 disabled veterans from the Veterans Administration Hospital in Milwaukee out for a morning fishing outing, followed by a cookout and fish boil.
    The fish caught by the vets are weighed and cleaned while they enjoy a cookout and fish boil at the American Legion Hall.
    Volunteers are also needed to help get the veterans on and off the boats, clean their fish, set up and clean up for the dinner and prepare food.
    Any boat owner who would like to participate in the event or any volunteer is asked to call Mary at 284-9144 or (920) 918-9144.
    The fishing time is estimated to be from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
    Homemade cookies and bars, including sugar-free goodies, should be placed in disposable containers, labeled as to whether they are sugar-free or not and dropped off at Inventors Brewpub on Lake Street in Port Washington between 8 and 10:30 a.m. on June 19.
    Because of limited space to do food preparation the day of the outing, volunteers helping with that work are asked to meet at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 420 Whitefish Rd., about 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18.
