Fishing rodeo held at Cox Farm



Chantler Freeman, 5, grandson of Andrew Parks, caught his first fish at the fifth annual Augusta Sparta District Laity fishing rodeo. Not only did Freeman catch his first fish, but he also caught 18 others and won the tournament. His grandfather expressed that he was overjoyed to see his grandson make his first catch at the rodeo. Freeman was joined by over 30 community children in the tourna­ment, who also enjoyed both an educational and spiritually uplifting afternoon filled with fellowship. “We’re like to thank Pleasant Grove, Antioc, and Mulberry C.M.E. Churches for their support, and we’d especially like to thank Leon Cox for letting us use his land and facilities for the rodeo,” District Lai Leader Travis Reid said. “Our aim was to engage the kids in a positive activity, and continue that positive spirit to encourage the kids to have a successful school year.” Chantler Freeman, 5, grandson of Andrew Parks, caught his first fish at the fifth annual Augusta Sparta District Laity fishing rodeo.
