June 4 brought beautiful weather for the fifth annual Scranton Kids Day Event. The turnout was an enormous success as roughly 175 youngsters and their parents brought their tackle and their appetite and enjoyed the day.
Nate Harper, Dan Towers, and Gary Goodwin were the quest speakers who talked to the kids and entertained the crowd. Goodwin brought his boat to show the kids and of course, it was a huge hit with them. Many gifts for parents and youngsters alike were handed out and winners of drawings were announced.
Organizers thanked all the sponsors and donors who made this event the best one yet. Several fish were caught and released and many happy smiles were seen on young and old alike. βIt takes a small army to put this together each year and with all the help of volunteers, it was a huge success once again,β a spokesperson said.
