Dedication of Mitchell Pond is Tuesday May 17th at 11:30 am
As very special occasion will unfold tomorrow at Heritage Ranch. Central Alberta Chapter of Trout Unlimited along with the City of Red Deer and the Mitchell family will be renaming and dedicating the trout pond at Heritage Ranch. The pond will now be called Mitchell Pond!
Come and join us as we honour a very deserving family. Barry Mitchell and his dad before him published the Alberta Fishing Guide. Barry helped found the Central Alberta Chapter of Trout unlimited and he spearheaded many a project here in Central Alberta and beyond to help restore our cold water fisheries.
The dedication starts at 11:30 at Heritage Ranch. At that time, we will ride a hay wagon pulled by horsed to Mitchell Pond. The dedication there will include a speech by Mayor Veer, Doug Pullen on behalf of our Central Alberta Chapter, a few words from Barry's daughter, Jennifer and then a ceremonial cast by Barry's son, Matthew.
A plaque will be dedicated at this time as well!
Please come and join us!
Come and walk down to the pond or ride your bike or ride in the wagon. We would love to have you there!
