Amherst Police Dept. Youth Fishing Derby

Chief of Police Charles L. Scherpa is pleased to announce that the Amherst Police Department will be sponsoring its annual Youth Fishing Derby on Saturday, May 30, 2009, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. This event will be held at the Mill Street entrance of Puffers Pond. The Youth Fishing Derby is a great event, which in the past has been very well-attended by young fishers in the community, and it is an excellent way for the youth of Amherst to meet Amherst Police Officers in a fun, social setting. The Youth Fishing Derby is open to children ages 12 and under who are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Prizes will be awarded for the winners in various categories. The Amherst Police Department will provide the bait and soda - children will only need to bring their fishing poles. The Fishing Derby is held rain or shine, and no pre-registration is required for this community-wide event. Come out for a day of fun!

Please contact Sergeant David Knightly at 413-259-3274 if you have any questions about this event, or email him at knightlyd@amherstma.gov.
