Sheriff Paul C. May has released the following information:
There will be a special guest at the Bassmaster Elite / WaterFest Event.
Make-A-Wish Foundation will be bringing Max (an 18 year old young man) and his family from New Jersey to the event.
Max's Wish was to meet Pro-Angler Kevin VanDam. His wish will come true in Okeechobee County.
He will meet Kevin VanDam on stage at the weigh-on on Thursday and hopefully he and his family will stay for the entire weekend.
Mr. & Mrs. VanDam will be presenting Max with one of his Pro Shirts.
I will be putting a Welcome Basket together for Max, and thought certainly he can't leave without some Okeechobee Shirts / gifts.
I am providing a special shirt for him and looking for more shirts for Max to show him "Okeechobee hospitality". (Businesses, events, etc.)
Size - Adult Medium
If you don't have a shirt, anything that you want to contribute would be fine. (Cups, historical info., magazines.)
(Max and his family will be flying, but if our Welcome Basket gets large, B.A.S.S. has already offered to pay to ship the items home from him. Pretty awesome!!!)
Due to this short notice, the only way I can think to get all this is.....
On Wed., (March 23) I will be across the street from the Historic Courthouse from 11 am until 12:30 pm (Old Teen Town) if you want to bring items to me. (Or, for those of you that see me - Anytime.)
(Can't make it any later than that as the Angler's Meeting is that afternoon and I will need time to put this together Wednesday night - Sorry )
Appreciate anything you can do.
