WHAT: Rep. Robert Godshall (R-Montgomery) and the Franconia Township Parks and Recreation Commission will sponsor the annual Youth Trout Fishing Derby on Saturday, May 3, at Branchwood Park in Morwood.

In addition to giving children and their families an opportunity to enjoy a clean, healthy outdoor activity together, it also leaves children with a greater appreciation for nature and the environment. Various prizes will be awarded to boys and girls in the 8 and under and 9-12 age groups. Refreshments will be available.
