The Big Pine Trout Farm of New Castle hosted a group of special needs children from the Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley organization last Wednesday.
“Boy, we had fun,” said Chris Richardson of Big Pine Trout Farm. “Each child caught a large trout and participated in a living classroom tour of pond and mountain stream trout habitat. These are children from a very special summer camp sponsored by Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley. We had 16 children and 8 Chaperones.”
