St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara is inviting the public to take part in the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Explorer Post 400 16th annual fishing tournament Aug. 29 and 30.
“Your participation in the tournament helps us develop our community’s most vital resource – our young people,” Sheriff Mascara said. “The proceeds from the tournament will provide funding for Explorer uniforms, traffic vests, walkie-talkies, flashlights and other equipment. Proceeds from the tournament also make it possible for our Explorers to participate in meetings and competitions throughout the year in the State of Florida.”
More than 100 young people ranging in age from 11 to 19 participate in the Junior Cadet, Cadet and Explorer programs. The fishing tournament is one of a year-round series of fund raisers to underwrite expenses of the program.
