Fishing contest volunteers appreciated


The Hackensack Children’s Fishing Contest would like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors who made this year possible for all the children.  

The family of Bob Kennedy wants to make sure everyone knows that without these people, this contest would not exist. During the beginning of this contest year, both sponsorship and memorial money was coming in. We were grieving and not keeping accurate records of who we were receiving donations from.
