The Thumb Chapter of  the Michigan Steelheaders needs our help.  They are holding a Veterans Free Fishing Day on June 14th at Harbor Beach.  They really need boats to help get these veterans on the water. If you can help, the Marina will give you a boat slip Friday night for free. They might even be able to help with fuel money if needed.
