Youth Garden

The Horseshoe Lake Youth Garden Group, sponsored by the Hughes Town & Country Garden Club met on July 18th. The Youths made Butterfly feeders out of plastic plates and added beads to the strings. Everyone went home with fruit and sponges to put on their feeders and were assigned to watch and observe what types of butterflies they see. Their last meeting for the summer will be on August 8th since school starts on August 13th.



D's Outdoors would like to THANK all the Anglers that participated. There was a huge crowd that gathered @ the final weigh in and Pay-out Ceremony, who saw Roy Harness take the OVERALL WINNERS PRIZE. Roy posted the BIG FISH, early, at the 1st round weigh in and it held on, to take home the $1000.00 pay out!!
