Volunteers are needed from 8:30 a.m to 1 p.m. for our annual event for the developmentally disabled at Big Creek State Park with a day of fishing and a lunch served by the Ikes. With 80 attendees expected the need is great this year! We need Ikes to help with fishing, pontoon piloting, serving and cooking lunch, set up, tear down and more!
