Hey guys, look at me!

Missouri City’s Parks & Recreation Department partnered with the Coastal Conservation Association recently, to teach children how to bait hooks and remove fish from hooks.

About 50 children participated in the Fishing Derby—a family-focused event that was free for children 16 and under. Equipment and bait were provided, or families were welcome to bring their own.

The event was one of many Healthy at H-E-B Challenge events Missouri City has hosted as part of its participation in a statewide health initiative to get more people healthy and active.

For details on the Challenge and upcoming events, visit the City’s website www.missouricitytx.gov; watch Missouri City Television (Ch. 16 on Comcast and Ch. 99 on AT&T U-verse) and join the Twitter conversation #ItsTimeMCTX.
