Also this week we had Kathy & Bob Hess Celebrate to Life BBQ.  If some of you remember she was the one that did the fish report here for many years and also worked here for over 30 years. We will miss her greatly! She loved doing the fish report and always added her funny comments to them. We love you Kathy!
