Being A Steward!

October 22, 2014

In preparation for Saturday’s Plum Creek City Pond Family Trout Fishing event, 7th graders at Lexington Middle School got a lesson in stewardship. Being a steward means to take responsibility or take care of something. Since Plum Creek Park is a public facility, open to everybody, then it is all of our jobs to be stewards of the park. Even though the trash and litter around the duck park may or may not have been directly the students’ trash, they took on the challenge of being a steward and picked up all that could be found.

Huge thanks to the City of Lexington for providing garbage bags, buckets, gloves, and cleaning poles for students to use. Additionally, thanks to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for stocking the pond with rainbow trout this week. All are welcome to attend the 2014 Family Fishing Event this Saturday, October 25 from 10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m. Loaner rods and reels, bait and fishing instructions are FREE to participants. This would be the perfect opportunity to learn about fishing. All participants’ ages 16 or older will need a 2014-fishing license.
