The Richmond Hill Exchange Club will host their 29th Annual Lynn Bennett Kids Fishing Derby on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 8 a.m. until noon at the Richmond Hill Fish Hatchery on Highway 144.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. The derby is free of charge and open to children ages 15 and under, accompanied by their parents or adult guardian. 

Over the last two years, the Exchange Club has not been able to host this event due to the pandemic and they are excited to bring it back to the community this year. For the first time, the club will be honoring Lynn Bennett, a long time member who organized the derby for years prior to moving out of the area. 

Entry forms can be downloaded from the Facebook Page, look for Richmond Hill Exchange Club on Facebook. For more information, please contact Chris Raiford at 912-661-0208.
