Lantana Kids Fishing derbyPBSO
On Saturday, May 2nd deputies participated in the annual Lantana Kids Fishing derby, hosted by the Lantana Chamber of Commerce. Fishing poles, along with tackle boxes full of fishing equipment, were purchased by the chamber for 50 children from all around the county who were invited to participate. The children fished from the seawall adjacent to the new Lantana bridge in the intercostal waterway. All kids were assisted by volunteers and deputies with hooking bait, fishing tips, and bringing in the fish that they caught. The kids with the largest fish were given awards, including the winner who received a brand new bike!
All children who participated were given lunch and went home with their brand new fishing poles and equipment. Deputies have taken part in this derby for the last four years.
