GONE FISHIN’: TTCU The Credit Union Hosts Sixth Annual Kids’ Fishing Day June 6.
The Credit Union is hosting its sixth annual Kids’ Fishing Day June 6, 8-11 a.m. at Bass Pro Pond. Open to the public, this is a fun, free family event that is sure to be a great time for all who attend. The first 500 kids 12 and under will receive a free fishing pole.
“We know there are kids whose circumstances might not allow them to purchase a rod and reel, or get to experience the fun of fishing,” says Kelly Barrow, Broken Arrow branch manager. “We hope that, over the years, we’ve given them memories they might not have had otherwise.”
In 2010, Barrow wanted to partner with a Select Employee Group (an organization that has affiliated itself with the credit union) to throw a community event that would serve as a “thank you” to the community, and Kids’ Fishing Day was born. one hundred free poles were given away the first year, and unbeknownst to , this would produce the highest attendance record for any event in history at that time.
Years later, thanks to its partnership with Bass Pro Shops, is hosting its sixth annual Kids’ Fishing Day and is now giving out five times the amount of poles that were given its inaugural year. Families travel from all over northeast Oklahoma to attend this fun, free event.
