FISHING DAY 2020
Fourteenth Annual Sgt. Tommy's Kids Family Fishing Day
Sgt. Tommy's Kids was proud to host our Thirteenth Annual Family Fishing Day, created to teach children about the outdoors. It is our mission – and our privilege – to encourage children to Take it Outside!
When: Saturday June 20, 2020 from 9am to noon
Where: Herrick Lake in Wheaton, IL
Who: Children 3-15 years
Why: To promote youth appreciation and education of the outdoors
The Family Fishing Day is completely free and hosted in appreciation of services provided by military, police and fire personnel.
Each of the registered children will receive a brand new fishing pole and tackle kit to enjoy the rest of the summer as they remember to "Take it Outside!"
The Sgt. Thomas M. Gilbert Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists to promote youth appreciation and education of the outdoors.
Tom was the type to take on challenges with both enthusiasm and appreciation. He enjoyed working with children and had a great love for the outdoors. As Tom traveled the world, he was able to enjoy both of these. He was the type of person that when he was around children he would take them under his wing. Some of his best memories were of playing soccer with the children in Djibouti Africa when he was stationed there or being around the many kids he met during his time in Iraq.
In his honor, this foundation was created to combine two of his greatest joys and we will work hard to create something he would be proud of.
