The world needs more Larry Stamp's! Larry Stamp who owns Rods and Reels in Need tonight was at the Lacey Community center giving away brand new rods and reels along with new Tackle boxes stuffed with terminal tackle to help out the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Organization. The kids got a quick lesson in casting and than down to the lake to try there luck. some trout, Bass, and blue Gill were caught and fun was had by all. Larry's motto : Because Everyone Deserves the chance to fish. If you have any fishing gear to donate or want to help out this incredible Non Profit Organization contact : Rods and Reels in Need
@donateyourgear4kids · Charity Organization.
I am forwarding emails regarding an opportunity to assist Rods and Reels in Need ( Larry Stamp) and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service at an event to provide Big Brothers and Big Sisters fishing rods and reels and instruction on how to use them. The event will happen at the Lacey Community Center ( Long's Pond) on September 22 from 3:00 to 7:00 PM.
One more thing to add. Another option for assisting would be to help sort through, organize, and prep donated rod and reel combos prior to the events. Larry with Rods and Reels in Need has a shed and two trailers with donated gear and it would be a big help if folks could spare an hour or two here and there to help him prep the gear. This could be done any time between now and the events. There is a second event in the parking lot of Salvation Army on Friday, September 24th. This is strictly giving away gently used rod & reel combos to families that qualify for their holiday give and meal program.
