Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

The event will include special ceremonies to recognize cancer survivors, caregivers and those lost to cancer. There will be games, fundraising, food and entertainment. The evening will include a moving luminary ceremony where bags, with names of honorees, are illuminated and a time of honor and remembrance is observed. The evening will conclude with the release of sky lanterns, also to honor and remember those fighting or lost to cancer.

Until the ACS accomplishes its mission, with our help, they will fund and conduct research, share expert information, support patients, and spread the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better. Come join us in the fight.
