Fishing Rodeo in Springwood will benefit local 6-year-old boy

The Buchanan Moose Lodge is sponsoring its Sixth Annual Fishing Rodeo on April 25, rain or shine. It will be held at Steve Thrasher’s pond in Springwood, beginning at 11 a.m. This year, proceeds will benefit 6-year-old Liam Camper, who has been diagnosed with myelomeningocele, a severe form of Spina Bifida. This disorder leads to neurological problems in the bladder and bowels as well as paralysis which can cause walking and mobility issues.

Lunch will be provided – hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and a drink.

Activities will include fishing, hay rides, sack races and a 50-50 drawing. Every child will receive a door prize. The cost is $30 for the first child and $20 for additional siblings.

For more information or to donate directly to Liam’s family, reach out to Steve Thrasher.

If you would like to attend, there is a form to be filled out. For donations for the event, contact Steve at 540-632-3598,, or Melissa at, 540-520-1752.
