The Viking Sportsmen will be facilitating their annual Senior Fishing Day on Thursday, July 18, beginning at 2 pm. This special event is a memorial for Arlene Bosek, who was a dedicated Viking Sportsmen volunteer and instrumental in facilitating the event in past years.
Viking Sportsmen welcome all seniors in the community and surrounding communities to attend. Senior Fishing Day is intended to get seniors and handicap individuals out to enjoy the lake, fish if they’d like and enjoy a delicious fish fry afterward. Each boat has two to four volunteers to provide help baiting the hooks and removing the fish that are caught.
Schedule of events:
2-4 pm: Fishing & pontoon rides at Arrowwood Resort & Conference Center (2100 Arrowwood Lane, Alexandria)
4-6 pm: Fish fry at Douglas County Fairgrounds 4-H Food Stand (800 3rd Avenue West, Alexandria)
Special thanks to the Senior Fishing Day event sponsors; Viking Sportsmen, Let's Go Fishing, Bosek Bait, Knute Nelson, Arrowwood Resort & Conference Center, Chippewans 4H Club, Coca-Cola Company and Alex Rubbish & Recycling.
