Warrensburg Firefighters Local 3923 wants you to play hooky and go fishing with a firefighter this Saturday.

Children, veterans, and children of all ages are welcome to attend the event at Lions Lake in Warrensburg. Saturday, September 18 between the hours of 8:00 AM  - 12:00 PM CDT. Fishing tackle and bait will be provided, or you can bring your own.

The Firefighters of Johson County will bait your hooks and remove your fish. The American Legion will be providing lunch, and there will be a bounce house for the kids. Participants in this event do not need a fishing license, thanks to an exception from the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Whether your kids want to meet and spend some time with some of Johnson County's real heroes, or they just want to experience fishing for the first time and it's not your bag. This is an excellent family event. You can learn more about the event on the Facebook Event Page here, and on the Warrensburg Firefighters Local 3923 Facebook page here.
