Tournament will benefit those in need

Friends and family of Craig White will host an annual fishing tournament June 13 to raise money for individuals or families in need of financial assistance.

Money has been donated to help pay bills because of illness or a change in circumstances.

“This is a way to remember Craig,” said White’s brother, Todd Henderson. “He was always ready to help people and this is one way to keep that spirit going. He was always generous.”

The Sons of the American Legion Post 95 of Peabody sponsor the tournament.

It will begin with an 8 a.m. sign-in at Peabody Country Club and will end at 3:30 p.m. The fish will be weighed between 3:30 and 4 p.m., followed by a meal and a drawing for donated prizes. Code Blue Blues Band will perform at 8 p.m.

Teams of two people will fish the country club lake (bank fishing only) or their favorite fishing hole after the 8 a.m. sign-in. Team members must have a valid Kansas fishing license and pay a $20 entry fee at sign-in to participate.

Only channel catfish and flatheads, no bullheads, will be weighed.

This is a one-day pass to fish at the country club. All non-members who fish without a current member the day before or the day after will be prosecuted.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Todd Henderson (620-983-2451), Mark Levering (620-983-2221), or Bret O’Dell (620-983-2097).
