Fishing Has No Boundaries 2014 is a success

By Shari Coatney, SKIL CEO
I wanted to share the numbers from this years Fishing Has No Boundaries event! We had one of the best turn outs ever for participants and we had a great cross disability group!!!

The volunteers we very appreciated. The cooks worked there back sides off and made sure everyone was fed and had their needs met.

The transportation was a nice touch this year. We could not of provided that if we didn't have willing people picking people up by 7:00. Then running people home after a long hot day in the sun!! Thanks for getting people to the event!
