KLSC Ladies Night Out Recap
The Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club would like to thank everyone for attending our 9th Annual Ladies Night Out Banquet on October 1, 2018. This year Denise Wirz & Cindy Brokiewicz co-chaired the event and the
banquet was a great success due to the hard work planning this event by the committee, over 30 volunteers and the generous support of our banquet attendees. The funds raised at this year’s event will be used for donations to the Brazeau Dive Team, Kelly Advancement Association, our Fish Stocking and Pheasant Planting projects, the Kids Fishing Derby, annual Ice Fishing Derby and our Scholarship Program. Donations in the form of a nonperishable food item and cash were collected at the banquet
by Lifetime members of Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club, Bob & Judy Jandt This year the donations collected for a food pantry were taken to Feed My Sheep in Lena, WI.
A delicious dinner of chicken and tenderloin tips along with side dishes and desert was served to the largest number of attendees of our Ladies Night Out Banquet to date. 193 ladies took part in winning Prizes from our jewelry, gun, basket, bucket, walk arounds and diamond earrings raffles along with our Grand Prize of a Las Vegas package. Gift certificate giveaways collected from local businesses surprised many of our guests towards the end of the banquet. We hope everyone had a great time! We would also like to thank all our volunteers, Romy’s Holiday Inn and our raffle prize donors.
Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club will host our 10th Annual Ladies Night Out Banquet on October 7, 2019. Watch for details at a later date on the website, in our summer newsletter or Facebook

2018 Kid's Fishing Derby Recap
The Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club held its 6th annual Kids Fishing Derby on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 at Holt Park, Kelly Lake. The derby is held each year on Wisconsin DNR’s free ﬁshing weekend. Pam Lemorande and Cindy Brokiewicz co-chair this yearly ﬁshing derby with club volunteers helping to make the event this year fun for 71 kids and their families. Fishing forecast for the 8am start time stayed true with mostly cloudy conditions and about 63 degrees. However, that did not detour the kids from enjoying a morning of ﬁshing, ﬁsh contest, bucket rafﬂes, lunch and door prizes. Red KLSC Kids Fishing Derby tshirts were given to each preregistered participate and it was great to see them all wearing their shirts throughout the day. The kids did an amazing job catching bass, perch, blue gill, crappies and northerns with prizes given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. A visit from Kelly Lake’s own Minon helped present the kids with ﬁsh badge awards along with a prize for their catch of the day. Lunch of hot dogs, string cheese, bottled water, chips, applesauce cups and homemade cookies was served. KLSC would like to thank A Breed Apart Taxidermy, Cellcom of Suring, Saputo Cheese - Lena, Frito Lay, Suring Sportsman’s Club, Holt Park - Town of Spruce, Kelly Lake Kwik Stop, Holiday Foods and all our volunteers for their donations and time.
