Some sweet fishing: Three year old Maggie Adams was one of the many children to participate in the Ponoka Lions Club fishing derby May 26 at Centennial Park, one of the events that were part of the annual Pet Valu Walk for Guide Dogs fundraiser. Maggie didn’t catch a fish, but did enjoy her slurpie later. Photo by Jordie Dwyer
