2019 Cast Away Fishing Derby

We held our 4th Annual Cast Away Fishing Derby today, We had a less than usual turn out than normal but we didn’t let that damper our day.  The fishing pond was a muddy mess but all the kids got to catch multiple fish. Special thanks to the MCI Employee Activities Committee for supplying us with food and fishing poles for the kids.
