The primary source of our funds was our annual Catfish Derby.  Thanks to the able leadership of Catfish Derby Chair, Gail Jonas, the multitude of hard-working volunteers, and the generosity of sponsors and donors, the Derby was a resounding success; providing excitement and family fun for catfish anglers, bringing in considerable extra commerce to our community, and netting over $14,000 for our community charity funds.
