The North Hastings Community Fish Hatchery has had a challenging year with the cancellation of its long-running dinner auction, the main source of funds to operate the facility. Fortunately, the community is hearing the call for help with a number of donors stepping forward in recent weeks to help make up the shortfall.

So, it is with great appreciation that NHCFH announces that Mike Wootton has made a generous donation to the Hatchery this week. Kevin Vance and Mike Wootton were all smiles, or we think they were under those masks, as the photo of the cheque presentation was taken.

It is great to see community members stepping up to help to keep the NHCFH growing local fish for local lakes.
