TAYLOR — The sixth annual Kids Fish ’N’ Fun Day is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Coan Lake in Heritage Park, 12111 Pardee Road.

The event is presented by Wayne County Community College District’s School of Continuing Education in partnership with the city’s Department of Golf, Parks and Recreation and Gander Mountain.

Registration is at the Taylor Community Library, 12303 Pardee Road.

Organizers say the purpose of the community event is to bring practical information and hands-on instruction about fishing and water safety to young people ages 7 to 12.
