-UPDATE!!

We had to cancel this event due to lightning and flooding. 😢

————-

Whether you've never casted a line or fishing IS your lifeline, come join us for Nice on the 9th benefitting Fifty Cal Fishing in memory of Dan Housh. We will be hosting a morning of low-key fishing and fun from 8am-noon at Crystal Lake (6901 SW 15th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73128).

-A little about Dan:

Dan was a Vietnam Veteran who served his country in the U.S. Navy. He loved his family, his faith, and fishing! When Dan passed away from Pancreatic Cancer last October, donations were generously sent to The Caleb Effect in lieu of flowers. We thought it would be fitting to host a day of camaraderie on the water and be Nice on the 9th to Veterans served through Fifty Cal Fishing.

-Fifty Cal Fishing uses fishing as an outlet for Veterans and first responders to fight PTSD on the water and help prevent PTSD-related suicide.

We think Dan would love knowing his life is still being remembered and celebrated in this way.
