Salmon Giveaway Helps Elk Rapids Community

Posted: Updated:

Local veterans helped out their community in a fishy way this afternoon.

They received a shipment of surplus salmon, and it was up for grabs to the community.

The salmon giveaway was at the Am-Vets building in Elk Rapids all afternoon.

The giveaways began last year, after Weirs run by American Canadian Fisheries had more than they could handle.

This is the second giveaway at this post in two weeks.

The first one saw a great community response.

9&10's Vanessa Fayz and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson have more on the effort to share salmon.
