Sixth Annual Kids Fishing Day on July 26
The Farmington/Farmington Hills and Southfield Optimist Clubs are sponsoring the Sixth Annual Kids Fishing Day on Saturday, July 26 at the Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve on Ten Mile Road east of Inkster. The Kids Fishing Day offers children ages 4 to 11 and their parents the opportunity to learn proper techniques and practice casting, while they try their hands at catch and release fishing.
The annual event has three two-hour sessions running from 9 – 11 a.m., 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., and 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Each child receives a high quality rod, reel, and tackle box, plus a snack, instruction, and fishing time – all for a fee of $20. Participants should wear sunglasses and a hat and are required to have parental supervision.
There is a limit of 20 kids per session. The registration deadline is July 21. To register online, go to https://recreg.fhgov.com or register in person at the Costick Center at 28600 Eleven Mile Road in Farmington Hills.
The Orrie Donley Optimist Golf Outing
AUGUST 5, 2014
The 24th Annual Orrie Donley Optimist Golf Outing will be held on August 5, 2014 at the Farmington Hills Golf Club, at Halsted and 11 Mile Roads.
This our largest fundraising event each year. It enables our organization to provide major financial support for many worthwhile programs and events. Optimist Clubs are part of Optimist International, one of the world’s largest service clubs. Each operates autonomously, allowing its activities to be specially created to serve the specific needs of local youth.
The Orrie Donley Golf Outing is a four-person scramble and includes breakfast, lunch and a BBQ dinner. Please join us for a fun day on the golf course or provide support through sponsorships or donations of prizes. The registration and sponsorship forms will be posted soon.
Optimist Club activities cover a wide range of services that genuinely support our goal of “Bringing Out the Best in Kids”. Many of these programs work in conjunction with our local schools and other community service organizations to assist high-risk students. The Farmington/Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club is a non-profit organization, funded by individual and corporate donations and special events. All profits from events such as the golf outing go directly to serving the youth in our community.
