Save the date, Saturday, May 4th from 9-2 pm. Mr. Vito Cardinale, President of Cardinale Enterprises LLC, will host the 2019 third Annual Take a Veteran Fishing Day at Lake Julianna, Ponderosa Estate Farms, Mill-stone Township.
Play Hook-e from PTSD is the theme for disabled veterans who will attend the third annual free Play HOOK-e. Take a Veteran Fishing Day; the goal of the day is to provide a chance for the disabled veterans to go fishing while enjoying the relaxing peaceful surroundings with other veterans.
Disabled veterans and their guests are invited to fish at this private lake to catch and release fish and then join Mr. Cardinale and his staff of volunteers for a picnic lunch. Hotdogs, hamburgers, pizza, drinks, and other goodies will be provided. As in the past, Mr. Cardinale and his team are proud to serve our veterans who have given up so much for our country.
Veterans with mobility challenges will have the use of 4 x 4 transportation around the lake along with fishing assistance if needed. Freshwater fishing licenses are not needed since this is a private lake.
Project Healing Waters Fly fishing Jersey Shore Chapter will assist with the fly-fishing instructions. Boating Education and Rescue will assist with their mobile education booth and equipment.
There will be door prizes, loaner rods and reels, terminal tackle, bait, and other fishing equipment available to ensure that you have a great time.
