June 5, 2015 – In recognition of National Fishing and Boating Week this week Assistant Professor of Exercise and Health Science David Perron acted as a Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) ambassador and held two workshops today at local Dayton and Soddy-Daisy Wal-Mart stores.
An FLW member himself, Perron volunteered in the ambassador program, explaining that “ambassadors come and talk to people about fishing and answer questions they have.” The events featured a casting contest and candy prizes for the children and in-depth conversation for adults about lines and lures and all things fishing. Interested youngsters ranged in age from elementary school through high school.
Perron’s ambassadorship was a fitting precursor to the upcoming Wal-Mart FLW Tour – 2015 at Dayton’s Lake Chickamauga on June 11-14, hosted by the Rhea Economic & Tourism Council.
