SMITH POINT SEA RESCUE DOES A SUMMER CAMP FOR KIDS


On June 17, Smith Point Sea Rescue  joined  with the Northumberland YMCA and Reedville Museum in a collaborated effort  that sponsored a  Summer Camp Program Fishing Trip where  28 Local Kids and their counselors and branch Director Christian Shirilla gathered at the Crazy Crab in Reedville.They were greeted by Captain Russ Bertino , Captain Robert Gwaltney, Captain Buddy Silvia and Captain Jim Shaffer. Once aboard, the Boat Captains delivered a safety briefing, checked life vests checked and gave a brief tour of the boats.   They departed at 9AM and 28 excited anglers fished until noon capturing  60 fish. The kids then departed to Reedville Museum for a fish fry, a tour of the museum, boats and model shops.  Prizes of fishing poles, reels  were awarded to the young anglers catching the largest fish on each boat.
