[June 06, 2014]  LINCOLN - Nathan Turner, former city council man and resident of Lincoln, was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman. He grew up attending the Park District Fishing Derby and cared deeply about passing his love of fishing and the outdoors on to other children. His family wanted to support the fishing derby to keep his memory alive and spread his love of fishing and the outdoors. He is survived by his wife, Sarah; his son, Benjamin; his parents Dan & Nancy; his sisters, Janell and Nanette; and many other loving family members and friends.

The FREE Fishing Derby is hosted by the Hickory Lane Campground near Atlanta. In the past, the pond has been stocked just days before the event.

Prizes will be awarded in several different categories in this competitive but fun event. The Turner family and the Lincoln City Police D.A.R.E program will sponsor the free derby.

Police Chief Ken Greenslate will be on hand cooking hotdogs and providing sodas to the fishermen and their families.

Parental approval is a must and parents are encouraged to attend.

Ages: 4-15
Time: 9:00 a.m. Noon
Date: Saturday, June 7
