Horton's Orthotics and Prosthetics will hold a day of fishing for children with disabilities and their families.
The event is scheduled Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Bishop Park pond in Bryant.
The event, called "Wheeling 'em in," is free. Reservations are required, however, and the deadline is Oct. 15.
"There are a lot of programs for children with disabilities, but a lot of times the children with physical disabilities get left out," said Tonya Horton of Horton's Orthotics and Prosthetics.
Several retired teachers from Caldwell Elementary School formally introduced a fundraising campaign Tuesday during two assemblies at the school.

Heifer pursues its mission by providing livestock, seeds, trees and training in animal well-being and environmentally sound agricultural practices to families in more than 50 countries, including the United States.
