On Aug. 31, the 75 anglers attended the 2013 Branch Pond Family Fishing Derby organized and hosted by 50 volunteers from the Edwards AFB community. The Fregoso Outdoor Foundation, a non-profit organization in California dedicated to showing thanks to the Armed Forces and their families, provided the prizes and giveaways for this year’s derby. Several Edwards AFB private organizations donated money to make the derby a free event for all who participated.
Team Edwards would like to thank the following for making this a successful event: Air Force Sergeant’s Association Chapter 1328, Edwards Officer’s Spouses Club, Edwards Enlisted Spouses Club, several private party donors, the many volunteers, Environmental Management, 412th Civil Engineering Division, Protocol, and Outdoor Recreation. All of the derby day photos can be found on the Branch Pond Fishing Derby Facebook page.
