  • Approximately 300 veterans fished Saturday morning for the veterans fishing day.
    An additional 300 attendees and 100 volunteers participated in the event. Many thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors who worked hard and donated much to make this a special day for our beloved veterans. Without our "Friends of the Neosho National Fish Hatchery" support group who sponsors all of our events, none of these wonderful outreach programs would be possible.

Approximately 75 attended the afternoon session. Rep. Bill Reiboldt presented an award to the commission for their contributions.
