The Ootsa Lake Fishing Derby has been going on for over 30 years and will continue to be the Labour Day event that all fisher folks have on their calendars.
Please add it to your calendar now.
The money raised from the raffle ticket of the boat and motor will support of our ongoing efforts to make Wistaria community hall a safe and fully functioning community centerpiece once again.
We would not be able to continue providing this wonderful derby without the ongoing support of individuals and businesses throughout this northern corridor who faithfully give of time, money and gifts year after year.
Please know how much we appreciate each and every one of you. To all individuals and families who support us by participating and entering the derby.
We also value your helpful input so that each year we can better accommodate your needs.
