WESTBOROUGH – The Westborough Civic Club will hold its annual fishing challenge at Minuteman Park on the shores of Sandra Pond in town on Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event is free and open to all ages, with multiple prizes given out for the longest fish caught between three different age groups. A fishing license is not required to participate in the challenge.

“This is a great no-cost opportunity for children and adults to try fishing with guidance from onsite Mass Wildlife instructors,” said Fishing Challenge Chair Bill Kohler in a press release.

The Westborough Civic Club is sponsoring the event with funds raised at its annual Christmas Tree Sale and through its member volunteers. 

Beyond this, the club also makes donations to local organizations in areas such as youth programs, arts, and scholarships. It is open to new members.

This year marks the return of the annual fishing challenge to its traditional date in May. 

Canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19, the event was then postponed to September last year.

More information about the fishing challenge and the Civic Club can be found on the club’s Facebook page or website at www.WestboroCivicClub.org.
