The eighth annual Franklin County Kids Fish Day will be Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The free event will be at Jordan’s Blueberry Farm off Hwy. 37 south of Mount Vernon.

Each participant must be accompanied by a parent/guardian throughout the entire event. A small amount of live bait will be available the day of the event. Fishermen should bring their own bait for an all day fishing experience. For more details, see the April 25 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
