The fourth annual Fishing for Freedom Tournament will be held from June 6-8, 2014, in Quincy, Illinois. This tournament brings together Veterans who were wounded or served after September 11, 2001 as a way for the community to thank them for their sacrifices and service to our County. Our Veterans need the help of IBEW 21 members.
Tournament organizers say the success of the event depends on how many boaters volunteer their time and talents. Randy Gengenbacher, one the Fishing for Freedom Event Coordinators, said “We need boaters to step up and say they would like to guide these warriors.” They don’t want to leave any soldiers on the bank; their goal is to field 100-150 volunteer boaters this year.
Jordan Gail from IBEW Local 702 in West Frankfort, Illinois informed us they are in dire need of boats and are collecting items for a silent auction. If you can’t volunteer you can also assist by raising funds at your work locations to help make the Fishing for Freedom Tournament a success.

If you have a boat and are willing to give up some of your time to help our Veterans get on the water or can raise funds for the event please email IBEW Local 21 Recording Secretary Bob Przybylinski at firstname.lastname@example.org he can also be reached in the Union Hall at 630-960-4466 ext. 447.
Together IBEW Local 21 members can make a difference in the communities where we live and work.
