Fishing Poles

Polebenders - Available to children ages 6-14. This program is made possible by the Ladysmith High School Class of '58, who provides and maintains the fishing Poles. Children sign up for a loaner card and they receive a free tackle box that is theirs to keep. They may check out a fishing pole for one week at a time. They must bring in their loaner cards to get a pole, and they are allowed only one tackle box.
