LARNED — The public is invited to “Fishing with the First Responders” from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, July 20, at Larned City Pond.
Come enjoy a morning of fishing with the local first responders from the Pawnee County Sheriff’s Office; Larned Police Department; Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism; Larned EMS; and Larned Fire Department. They will be on hand to help with fishing, and they’ll be handing out goodies, snacks and water. The public can see Larned’s latest emergency response equipment and get to know some local heroes.
Poles, bait and tackle will be provided if needed and prizes will be awarded for the kids. This free event is open to all ages; just remember to have a fishing license if required.
