Saturday Kiwanis Fishing Rodeo

A.W. Armstrong of Cordele shows his niece Janel, the correct way to cast a rod during the Kiwanis Club’s annual kids fishing rodeo, an event of the Watermelon Festival. Seventeen young anglers and their parents or guardians came to a pond on Kelly Road, Saturday, for a chance to drown some worms. After the fishing time was up, the three anglers with the heaviest fish received a trophy and some fishing gear. Door prizes were also given. Photo by Neil McGahee
