Memorial Day Weekend Part II

Stories by UseppaGin

The fun continued.  All ages, red, white and blue, hula-hoops, cannonballs into the pool, lunch on the Collier patio, comings and goings from the island marina, old friends and new celebrating Memorial Day on Useppa.

Thank you to all the men and women…

the veterans who made the weekend possible.

2016 Memorial Kids Fishing Tournament

Kids, Fish, Candy, Trophies & Blue Ribbons

Holidays on the island are meant for kids and the child in all grownups. Captain Ken and Donald Beckstead made it happen. Plenty of bait, plenty of children, and plenty of fish at Useppa’s Izaak Walton Kids’ Memorial Day Fishing Tournament.

This year two anglers will turn 13 and so this was their last chance to participate. Isabella Soriero won her 14th trophy. Brady Stokes helped others reel in their catches. From now on they will be on the dock as role models and assistants continuing the long tradition of teaching Useppa children about catch and release.
