"If we have one kid who continues to fish, we will have succeeded," Laporte area Take a Kid Fishing coordinator Dwight Powell said of the initiative that began last year and will re-launch this summer on Garfield Lake.


Kids ages 10 to 15 from the greater Laporte area, including Park Rapids, are invited to head out onto the lake with volunteers from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 9. The boats will launch from Pine Beach Resort on the north side of Garfield.
