Memory Cafe: Fishing

Come fish with us! For the second year in a row, we will fish off the pier by the Neenah Public Library. We’ll meet inside the Library and then head out to see how many fish we can catch. We received a special fishing license waiver for participants from the Wisconsin DNR. Volunteers will need a fish licensing, if they plan to fish. The Neenah High School Fishing Team will join us and we will have plenty of fishing poles. You may also bring your own. If the weather is poor, we’ll share our fish stories and engage in other fish related activities in the library.
