Fishing Gear Sale to benefit LSSU Aquatic Research Lab

10:00 AM until 2:00 PM

Organization:

Description: The weather may be feeling more like hunting season, but join us for this sale of fishing gear donated by a longtime friend of the university and Sault Ste. Marie resident, Bill Gregory. Gregory, former member of the LSSU Board of Trustees and LSSU Foundation's Board of Directors, has donated dozens of rods and reels, hundreds of lures and tackle, and many other pieces of assorted fishing gear to LSSU. The fishing equipment, some of it new and some of it used, will be sold in this fundraiser for the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory. The tackle was collected by Gregory through his many years of fishing the St. Mary's River and the Great Lakes. While most of it is being sold first-come, first-served, a few items will be available through a silent auction. Payment will be accepted at the door through cash, check or credit card.
