Annual Fishing 4 Purpose Catfish Tourney coming up


On November 17th 2013, our son Trevor Clark was fatally injured in a hunting accident in Edison, Ohio. Trevor had made a huge impact in our lives and the community in many ways. July 18th 2015 is the 2nd Annual Fishing 4 Purpose Trevor Clark Memorial Catfish Tournament.

This tournament is our way not only to share Trevor’s passion of fishing and keeping his memory close to our hearts but a way to give back to our Awesome Community who gave our family so much financial and moral support. The donations, calls, visits, continued prayers and words of encouragement during our time of bereavement were appreciated from the bottoms of our hearts.

The Catfish Tournament is to raise money for the Annual Fishing 4 Purpose Trevor P Clark Memorial Scholarship Fund. This fund goes to scholarships for graduating seniors in the Mount Gilead School District and also Oakland Park Conservation Club of Marengo, Ohio for their 3 day Hunter Safety Camp called “Kids of Field”.

During the Tournament we are also having a Silent Auction. We are in great need of Silent Auction Donation Items to make this successful. Please if you would like to be able to help us give something back to the community we could use your generous donations. You can contact Stephanie Clark at 740-361-8894.
