Thanks for help with annual fishing derby

On behalf of the Gloversville Recreation Commission, we would like to thank you for all of the help during the fishing derby.

First, we would like to thank Boy Scout Troop 51 of Broadalbin along with their leaders. They braved another rainy night to keep an eye on the freshly stocked pond. They also stayed throughout the event to help.

We would also like to thank Avery’s Trout Hatchery for letting the Boy Scouts help in the stocking of the pond. Also, we would like to thank Wal-Mart and Price Chopper for their donation, Stewart’s for donating breakfast supplies, the Fly Shack for its gift card and US Foods for the breakfast sausages.

A big thank you goes out to the Department of Public Works for getting the park set up and torn down before and after the event, and last, but certainly not least, thank you to the community for the huge show of support.
