Like many events the Annual Fishing Derby was cancelled last year due to COVID. But, it’s back on for this year. The McGennis Youth Center Fishing Derby is set for Sunday, June 6. The event is co-sponsored by the Center and the Rich Hill Fourth of July Committee.
Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the east shelter house near the tennis courts. The derby will run from 6 to 7.
A parent or guardian must accompany each child. The event is open to children ages 3 through 15. The contest will be held in four age groups and prizes will be awarded in each age category. A hot dog roast will follow. The hot dogs are donated by the Rich Hill Café.
McGennis Youth Center is located five miles west of Rich Hill on A Highway then three miles south on Route WW. Watch for signs.
