Anyone who is interested there will be a kids fishing derby down at Morse park on March 5th which is a Saturday. Not sure of the time yet, but I think I was told it would start in the morning and run until noon or something like that. The MDC is putting this on and they will be set-up over by the walk over bridge by the ball fields. There are some things in the works for the park down at Hickory. The state has a grant and they will be planting native grass and trees along the river corridor along with something else. Actually, I need to put the word out on that as well. We are looking for contractors that are familiar with type of work. The contractor will get paid for services via the grant which is for $25,000. More details to follow.

Can't beleive no one else has commented on this so far. Here is a link to the Neosho Daily News concerning the 25,000 grant that was awarded to the city for the park.

Sorry Ollie,

I was planning on bringing my daughter downt there for a little bit, but I think that the weather forecast is a little too cold for a 2.5 year old. Thanks for communicating it though.

Ok, you guys missed out on some cool things! It was a bit chilly I'll give you that, but all the info I learned was worth it. We talked about Urban deer hunt in Neosho, MDC bear trapping, and mountain lions as well. Oh yea, we also talked about the plans for the creek. At least 50 people turned out for the event from what I saw. A lot of people were fishing all through the day. MAKO was there, Audebon was there, and so was a lot of MDC people. Got to finally meet our county enforcer for MDC and that was good. We also anounced our spring clean-up for this year. April 9th on a Saturday starting at noon and lasting till around 3:00. Oh yea, also caught and released around 20 or so trout in the day.

Yep we were gonna do it, but the 2 year old was a little grumpy, probably not the best weather for a fussy toddler. I was interested in their future plans. No need to meet the MDC enforcer, we've met several times ;)
