Friends of Lake Anita receive $200 donation

Josh Peach of the Iowa DNR is shown accepting the donation on behalf of Friends of Lake Anita from Melanie Petty, fund Representative.

The “Friends of Lake Anita” organization has received a $200 donation intended to be used for their annual fishing clinic. Melanie Petty, with the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund, says the clinic, which will be attended by about 100 children, will be held at Anita State Park on Saturday, June 4th.

She says the donation was a natural fit for the Fund, because Trevor enjoyed fishing, especially during college. Trevor died during a fire in Council Bluffs in June 2009.

The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund was established in the Atlantic native’s honor.
