Pershing Middle Dads Sponsor Day at Lake Murray

fishing at Lake Murray Gone fishin' was the sign up at Pershing Middle School on a recent Saturday as the Papas of Pershing Students (POPS) and the local Elks Lodge held a day of fishing and family fun at nearby Lake Murray.

More than 60 students, parents/guardians, staff members and volunteers attended the event, which was designed to bring the community together for a day of fun.

"The fishing was optional, but it was a great way for the Pershing POPS and the whole Pershing family to have a wonderful experience," said Principal Sarah Sullivan. "We very much appreciate all the work of the POPS dads to put this together and the support of Elks Club 168, whose members donated and helped serve the food. And another thanks goes to Squidco, which sponsored the fishing derby and provided supplies."
