Staff from the Winona District Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge and Friends of the Refuge Headwaters joined together to take approximately 25 clients of Project COMPASS and their "helpers" fishing for an evening.

Although it drizzled most of the evening, everyone had a great time as the bluegill were biting! As part of the event, the Friends provide a picnic dinner for all the participants. Project COMPASS offers events and classes for people with disabilities through the Winona Community Education Office. This is the 23rd year of the Winona District and Project COMPASS sharing this special evening.
