The Romans 1:20 Christian Retreat & Environmental Education Center hosts a free “Hooked On Jesus Youth Fishing Event” from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, at the center, 1041 County Road 142 N, West Mansfield.
Children ages 6 through 12 will visit stations that teach them how to set up their fishing poles, cast, identify fish, learn about fish habitat and discover the best “Fisher of Men” of all times. All participants receive a new fishing rod, reel, lures and more.
Kids can then try out their new skills by fishing at the two stocked ponds at Romans 1:20.
There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required.
The program is limited to 50 children. All activities take place outside, where small groups will rotate through stations spaced far apart and sanitizing of the stations occurring between groups.
