Elks will host Carp Derby
Lyons Elks Lodge No. 869 is the sponsor of the twenty-second Annual Carp Fishing Derby to be held June 23 in the Village of Lyons. The registration fee is $3 per participant.  Fishing for the Derby will only be permitted between the Route 14 and Leach Road bridges within the Village of Lyons on the south bank of the canal.

Registration is only on the day of the Derby and will be held at the pavilion on the south bank of the Barge Canal from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Derby will end at 4 p.m.

This event is being held in recognition of National Fishing Week with the idea of having fun and learning about fishing at the same time. The State of New York is offering free fishing on that day with no license being required.

All participants in the Derby will be required to follow the Derby rules, which will be available at the time of registration. The rules include requirements that all children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult to not only register, but, also during the hours of the Derby. Also, each participant will be allowed to enter only two carp in the Derby and all fish entered must be alive at the time that they are weighed in. Also, all fish entered in the Derby must be caught from the south bank of the canal in the area between the Route 14 and the Leach Road Bridges in the Village of Lyons.
Prizes will be awarded for girls 13 and under, boys 13 and under, girls 14 and older and boys 14 and older.

Praise Alive night set
Wayne County Praise Alive: A Night of Worship will be held Sunday, May 20 at 6 p.m. at Christian Community Church at 5042 Ridge Rd. (just east of the four corners) in East Williamson.

Our vision for this monthly event is to bring churches together in unity and the love of Christ to worship God in spirit and in truth.  This has created a unique opportunity, experiencing different worship leaders' styles as we come together, laying aside our denominational differences to worship our God. We end each worship night with fellowship and refreshments.  

If you have any questions about this event, or if you are a worship leader or team that would like to be part of a future worship night, please call Pastor Tony Goddard at (315) 679-0926 or tgoddard2@rochester.rr.com.
