Fishing Friday this morning at Graham Park

GREENVILLE — The fish don’t stand a chance.

After receiving a one-year reprieve, the scaly occupants of the Graham Park “lake” will again be the targets this morning of hundreds of young anglers, during the 17th Annual David Dickson Memorial Fishing Friday, scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon at Graham Park.

The event was moved to the Greenville SportsPark last June, as Graham Park was undergoing renovations.

Fishing Friday typically draws swarms of children from across Greenville and the surrounding area. The Greenville Police Department will provide fishing equipment and a hot dog lunch.

Dickson was named as the Greenville Police Department’s Crime Prevention Officer shortly before he passed away in June 2005. Dickson was also the chief of the Commerce Emergency Corps and a member of the agency’s dive team and had been Greenville’s only Litter Abatement Officer, a position he had filled for seven years prior to his being named Crime Prevention Officer.

Fishing Friday is one of the activities hosted by the Greenville Police Department as part of the annual Summer of Safety program.

Swimming Friday at Ja-Lu Pool is set for June 28, Movie Friday will be July 5 at Greenville Middle School, Skating Friday rolls out on July 12 at Skate Safari and the Teen Police Academy will be held July 15-19.

Those wanting more information about any of the Summer of Safety programs can contact Officer Richard Calender at 903-453-0435 or by email at rcalender@ci.greenville.tx.us or can contact Officer James Hamilton at 903-453-0432 or by email at jhamilton@ci.greenville.tx.us.
