Volunteers for fishing derby
Newburyport Youth Services is seeking volunteers to help with the organization’s first Youth Fishing Derby. The event is scheduled for 8 to 11 a.m. June 16 at the Upper Artichoke Reservoir. A few volunteers are needed to help with the weight and measure station. Anyone interested is asked to contact Andrea Egmont, director of youth services, at 978-465-4434. To register, visit newburyportyouthservices.com or stop by the office at 149 High St. The registration fee is $10 per participant. The fishing derby is open to youths between 3 and 16; parents can’t fish but can help the youngsters, who will be fishing from shore. This catch-and-release tournament will award those with the longest and heaviest catch of the morning.
