62nd Annual Disabled Vet’s Day Fishing Outing – Veterans hit the seas for annual fishing trip

The boats set off from the Quincy Yacht Club in Houghs Neck on Wednesday morning. Local lobstermen and charter fishermen donated their boats and their time to take the veterans on a three-hour fishing trip around Quincy Bay and Boston Harbor. When the veterans returned around 1:30 p.m. with about 20 flounder in tow, they were greeted with a Thanksgiving-style lunch and entertainment, including a DJ. The fish they caught will be donated. This year marked the 62nd year for the fishing tradition and a particularly special year for organizer Michael Cheney, who has been involved with the event for 41 years. This year, Cheney’s father, 94-year-old Tom Cheney, was the guest of honor. Lots of photo’s! >click to read<09:19
