Fun, Fishing, and Happy Memories at the Annual C.A.S.T. for Kids Event Held at Elephant Butte, New Mexico
Written by: Emily Quinn
Even the fish were feeling the love at this year's C.A.S.T. for Kids event at Elephant Butte Reservoir in New Mexico.When you combine happy kids, the beautiful outdoors and the joys of fishing, it must be a C.A.S.T. for Kids event. This past weekend, the annual C.A.S.T. for Kids event was held at Elephant Butte Reservoir in New Mexico, and everyone who participated left wearing a smile that extended from cheek to cheek.
The event received a great turnout with 43 participants, and 7 volunteers. Kids enjoyed the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade from fishing experts, and were able to put their new knowledge to the test while out on the water.
The Elephant Butte community holds this event in high regard. Not only does it provide children with disadvantages and/or disabilities with a unique recreation opportunity they may not otherwise experience, but it is also a special day for their parents.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local businesses that donated lunch items to the event’s barbecue picnic. We’d also like to recognize the volunteers who made this event possible, and who turned it into such an enjoyable experience for the children and their families.
C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation is a public charity that was formed in 1991 to join volunteers who love to fish with disabled and disadvantaged children for a day of fishing in the outdoors.
