Bobby Miller’s Memorial Fishing Rodeo held
The Ellaville Lions Club has hosted fishing rodeos every year at Bobby Miller’s pond for about 15 years.

Throughout the morning, the children did well in catching strings of fish, big ones and little ones.

Chad Childs, president of the Lions Club, presented the awards to the winners.
