WHITINGHAM- Mother Nature said yes to rain, the smiling fisherman said no, and the sun came out. The Kids Hooked on Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Deerfield Valley Sportsman’s Club and friends, provided a great day for 70 local children. Fishing, lunch, and prizes for all. Everyone went home happy, thanks to all those who contributed and the loyal volunteers. Special thanks to Donnie Boyd, the fish official, who has been part of the derby for more years than anyone can count.
