Senior's will be attempting to land the big one from the CSPO Farm Pond behind the Calcasieu Correctional center at 5400 Broad Street in Lake Charles. Each senior will be allowed to use one fishing pole and there will be assistance available with baiting lines and removing fish from hooks if needed.

The event is from seven till eleven a.m. on Friday May 3rd. I'm sure we'll all hear about the big one that got away. There is no charge and refreshments will be served. Make sure all seniors you know are aware of this great event.
