Again our community is inviting soldiers from Fort Drum, along with veterans who have been discharged due to combat related injuries, to enjoy a fun filled fishing excursion on the St. Regis and Deer Rivers. Fishing guides, boats, canoes and necessary gear will be provided . Free camping for the weekend is being offered to every soldier (compliments of Jelly Beans Campground). Free meals will be provided and vouchers that can be used in our community will be distributed to all of our guests. After a day on the rivers and a delicious barbeque, we will recognize and award prizes for the ”Best catch of the day” followed by an evening of entertainment. All of this is possible due to the American Legion Post 514 and all the generous donations from area businesses and the people in our community. We look forward to showing, “YOU”, our special guests how much you are and always will be appreciated. Much more information HERE
Please support this outstanding event near the mighty St. Lawrence River and the wonderful people who make this happen year after year!

This massive Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar was found in Adams County, OH snacking on black walnut leaves.
