A free ice fishing event for veterans and soldiers this Saturday has been moved to Georgetown Lake from Evergreen Lake after the death of Greg Henika, who fell through the ice Jan. 22 on Evergreen Lake.
The third annual Vets on Ice event and hot dog lunch is hosted by Golden VFW Post 4171, the Just One Day veterans nonprofit group and other veteran organizations. It's scheduled for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Georgetown Lake. Last year, the event had about 80 participants; this year, organizers expect 180 or more.
All participants over the age of 16 must have a fishing license.
