Want to hook a kid on fishing?  Come to the annual fishing derby every June at the Washington Township Recreation Center.  The fishing and worms are free so grab your pole, family and come out and enjoy the day. You’ll see Moms, Dads and Grandparents smiling as the pictures are taken.  Prizes and trophies and food for all.  Children ages 5-15 are encouraged to participate and try this event.
