Kenneth Vaughn of the Chairbound Sportsman Organization has announced they now have a 24-foot pontoon boat with a new Yamaha 80 four-stroke motor for the 2020 fishing season on Strawberry Lake.

The boat has been modified to accommodate up to five wheelchairs, including electric wheelchairs.

In addition, the boat can carry six escorts to accompany the physically challenged in addition to the captain and first mate.

The pontoon boat is a stable platform that will allow the Chairbound Sportsman Organization to provide more fishing opportunities.

They plan on providing free fishing for disabled people, veterans and combat wounded servicemen this summer.

A typical group fishing event involves the pontoon boat and a couple other volunteers with their boats to accommodate five to six in wheelchairs, three to four with physical disabilities, one to two children with terminal illness and four to five veterans.

The event always includes a free lunch where fishing stories can be shared. If you know someone who would like to go fishing or if you would like to make a donation to support this nonprofit organization contact Kenneth at www.chairboundsportsman.org. The next fishing trip at Strawberry Lake is July 11. (Helmick is a Serve Daily contributor.)
