SPECIAL TO THE VINDICATOR
The Outdoor Writers Of Ohio treated veterans from Shepherd of the Valley-Niles to a fishing trip to Meander Reservoir. Residents Bob Persino (Air Force), Ed Persino (Army), Joe Spano (Navy) and Tony Marzano (Army) and the Shepherd staff arrived at 9 a.m. and by the day’s end, everyone had caught at least one fish. Above, Ed Persino holds one of the 25 fish he caught while an outdoor writer looks on. The OWO members, some of whom came from as far as Cincinnati and Toledo, organized the trip and covered all the expenses and gear, including fishing poles, bait and lunch.
