Seniors enjoy fishing at Reservoir Park

Senior citizens enjoyed fishing Friday at Reservoir Park during the Senior Citizens Fishing Day. However, seniors age 65 and over and youth age 16 and under are always welcome to fish at the local pond during daylight hours.

Area senior citizens were met with a sunny morning Friday, May 19, for the annual Terry Richardson Memorial Senior Citizen Fishing Day. Senior anglers surrounded the pond to enjoy fellowship with each other, with Tyrone Borough volunteers, and, of course, to catch fish.

Fish were stocked the evening before by the Bald Eagle Sportsmen, so trout were plentiful. Food was donated by area businesses, including Kunzler & Company and Herrs, and seniors were able to enjoy a free lunch at the pavilion and snacks throughout the day.
