20th Striped Bass Fishing Tournament open to kids ages 8-16

NEW CASTLE — Wentworth Marina and the Little Harbour Charitable Foundation will host the 20th Striped Bass Fishing Tournament in 2018. In addition, a Veterans Day of Fishing will raise money for veterans programs at Northeast Passage.

The Striped Bass Tournament for Kids on June 24th supports programs for children and youth in the Seacoast.

On June 20, 17 disabled veterans will be treated to a day of fishing, led by Ritchie White and an enthusiastic group of boat captains. “We want to focus on honoring these veterans for their service and sacrifice, ensuring each veteran leaves with a special memory and knowing how much their sacrifice is appreciated,” said Paul Holloway, president of the foundation. Northeast Passage uses recreational experiences as a tool to empower individuals with disabilities.

The Drug Free Kids initiative has brought substance misuse prevention programs to students in Grades 6-12, educators and parents in Portsmouth, Rye, Greenland, Newington and New Castle communities. Other programs supporting healthy choices include 68 Hours of Hunger, Arts in Reach, Gather and NH Coastal Conservation. Register before June 19 at www.stripertournamentforkids.com.
