SIGN UP YOUR ORGANIZATION!
Your kids could be treated to a morning of fishing, boating, fresh air and a cookout, if they take part in our 19th Annual
Take-A-Kid Fishing Day
Last year over 160 children from the various Boys and Girls Clubs, Scouting groups, neighborhood groups, Providence Recreation Department and several group homes were treated to a great morning of fishing on the bay, followed by a big cookout of hot dogs and burgers.
This was all made possible by members of the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association who took them all out on 65 MEMBER BOATS and over 185 VOLUNTEERS!
THERE IS NO COST TO PARTICIPATE FOR ACCEPTED GROUPS!
Many companies donated products and services including Brewer Cowesett Marina, Homestead Bakery, Newport Creamery, Tarbox Toyota and the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Foundation.
Obviously space is limited, so we urge you to sign up as soon as possible.
All groups must arrive at Brewers Cowesett Marina (Warwick, RI) by 8:00 A.M. and fishing will take place in Greenwich Bay from 9:00 to 11:30 A.M. Then everyone returns to the marina for a cookout at noon!
It doesn't matter if your group contains 5 kids or 20 kids, you are welcome to participate.
All the children must be between 7-13 years of age.
Every group will be required to have an adequate number of adult chaperones.
Note: Chaperones and parents will be required to remain on shore. Every adult that goes on a boat means one less child can be accepted, but if there are available spaces on the boats, any chaperone that wants to go along will be allowed to. We want you to know in advance that this is NOT guaranteed.
Many children have never fished, and most have never experienced being on a boat. We can promise that they will all have a great experience!
Please note: We welcome and will make provisions for handicapped children to participate, but because of the nature of this event (boats, fish hooks, etc), children with behavorial issues should not participate.
All children MUST have signed permission slips (we supply), and the organizations involved will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the marina.
Everything is taken care of! All we need is for YOU to sign up to participate! It will be an experience your children will always remember!
