Eyman Plumbing Heating & Air will host a free Kids Fishing Day on Saturday, June 25th, at Prairie Queen Recreation Area in Papillion, 128th and Lincoln Road.
“We are going to shine up our trucks and drive them to the park,” said Christina Navarro of Eyman Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. “You’ve seen our trucks around for 60 years. Now you should come and meet us.”
Event check-in and lunch takes place from 1 to 1:30. A free meal of hot dogs, chips and drink is included. Registration runs through June 3rd or until the event is at capacity.
The lunch is followed by an hour-long fishing workshop. Certified instructors from the NWA Kids Fishing Clinics Charity Inc. and Nebraska Game & Parks will teach casting, knot tying and water safety, as well as fish identification and anatomy.
Participants receive a certificate and free use of a fishing rod and reel. After the workshop, there will be open fishing from 2:30 to 4.
Christina said this event offers a chance for Eyman to interact with the community.
“We’re a family-friendly company and this event shows that.”
There will also be a free special drawing. Two participants will be entered to win a lifetime Nebraska fishing permit, courtesy of Eyman Plumbing Heating & Air.
Registration is open to area children ages 5 to 15 until Eyman fills the 75 spots. To register, provide the child’s name, their parents’ name and phone number.
