FCEC team members and partners always appreciate those who fish! This month, we will be showing our appreciation with a big event: our Second Annual Fisherman Appreciation Day. We invite you, your family and friends to join us for a day of free food, fun games, educational displays and raffle prizes. Everyone is welcome!
Date: June 25, 2011
Time: 11am – 2pm
Location: The end of Santa Monica Pier
This year’s Fisherman Appreciation Day will have face painting activities offered by Creative Faces, entertainment by Westside Comedy Theater, and interactive games for the children along with educational booths staffed by several organizations, including Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, Heal the Bay, Montrose Settlements Restoration Program, Santa Monica Baykeeper, Marina del Rey Anglers and Seafood for the Future. These booths will give you the opportunity to learn about the local environment and contamination. FCEC team members will also provide tips on how to protect your health by not consuming contaminated fish.
As for those who are interested in honing their fishing skills, Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Program Director, Larry Fukuhara, will lead a workshop at the event. During the workshop, we will serve free food and refreshments provided by Mariasol Restaurant.
Finally, to really show our appreciation, we are giving away raffle prizes valued at over $400. The prizes include whale watching and harbor cruise tickets, tickets to the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and a custom wrapped fishing rod. Thank you to Harbor Breeze Cruises, Spirit Cruises, the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and Santa Monica Pier Bait & Tackle Company for their generous contributions.
Fisherman Appreciation Day happens only once a year. So, help us to make this celebration worthwhile by coming out with your friends and family! You can download the event flyer and distribute it to others.
