virginiaThe fourth annual Kid’s Fishing Day will be held Saturday, March 31 at Douthat State Park in Millboro, VA. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. at Camp Carson Picnic Shelter. Fishing will begin at 9 a.m. and last until noon. All participants must register.

Fishing is for children ages 12 and under. No permit or license is needed. A section of Wilson Creek will be marked for fishing. Registered participants will receive a door prize.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
