The ICHTHYS Bass Club of Altoona held its 13th annual Jack Swisher Memorial Fishing Derby May 18 at Canoe Creek State Park, Hollidaysburg. Seven children ages 9-14 from the Juniata Valley Elementary School spent the morning and afternoon with the club members. The children were given a derby T-shirt, a tackle box filled with fishing items and a rod and reel to keep. The children were given safety instructions on the proper way to use their fishing equipment by Dale A. Harten, president. Each child was partnered with a club member or club volunteer and went fishing for several hours. Lunch was provided for all who attended the derby. The club raised approximately $1,300 for the event. Donations were made by the following sponsors (all are from Altoona, except where noted): Colleen Swisher, Frostproof, Fla.; Hamers Auto and Towing, Intrepid Design, LLC; Auto Electric Service Co. Inc.; Kaelyn Ivory and David Ivory Jr.; Dr. Dennis C. Dobbins, DMD; the Shields Brothers; Mallows Hardware; and Field & Stream. The photo is of the members and children that attended the derby.
