Kids And Cops Fishing Derby Coming To Pembroke This Weekend
Upper Ottawa Valley OPP is taking part in the annual “Kids and Cops” fishing derby this weekend.
The derby sees local OPP officers taking part in a fishing derby with local youth from the area. Constable Shawn Peever says that this event is a great chance for kids to view police officers in a positive light.
Peever says the event has always been a big hit with youth in the community, and expects more of the same this year.
The catch-and-release derby kicks off Saturday morning at 9:00am at the Pembroke Marina and runs until noon. While there’s no pre-registration required, youth are being urged to bring their own rods, reels, bait and an adult.
