Children with special needs had the chance to spend some time out by the pond Wednesday afternoon.

The Lake Improvement Association put on their yearly Special Needs Children's Fishing Outing, where students with special needs from the Auglaize and Mercer County area were able to cast a line and try to catch a fish. Those that help to organize the event say it's a lot of fun to be a part of every year, and seeing the kids enjoying themselves makes the work worth it.

"The best part of it is to see when the children catch a fish - it could be a little 3 inch sunfish and they're very thrilled about it - it's a nice break for the children, for the teachers, it's a certain amount of work on their part to coordinate everything and everybody does what they need to do to make it work," said Stan Wilker, a trustee with the Lake Improvement Association.

Around 200 kids participated in the event.
