June 6th through 14th starts National Fishing and Boating Week. Alabamians will have the opportunity to fish for free in most public waters. Free Fishing Day allows residents and non-residents to fish without a fishing license for a day in both salt and fresh waters. “It’s also a great opportunity for kids to get out and learn how fun and exciting fishing is, plus the day gives families a chance to do something together outdoors.” “It’s also a great opportunity for kids to get out and learn how fun and exciting fishing is, plus the day gives families a chance to do something together outdoors.” It is also a great opportunity for kids to get out and learn how much fun and exciting fishing is, plus the day gives families a chance to do something together outdoors.
June 21st is Father’s Day. A father means many things, a source of support and strength. Any man can be called father but it takes a special person to be called Dad. Show them how much they are appreciated on this day.
School is out for the summer. I want to caution everyone to be watchful of the children as they go about enjoying their time off from school.
