Anyone who lives in or visits Northern Chautauqua County knows that Lake Erie offers both picturesque views and some of the best fishing in the United States. So it was with great enthusiasm that Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels accepted the donation of a full-day fishing charter from Nathan Queer of Westfield Charters.

Nathan, a long-time volunteer for Meals on Wheels, offered the charter for a raffle to help the program raise funds.

A sunny September day awaited as lucky winner Bob Block headed out with friends and family for what turned out to be a great day of fishing. Equipped with bait, fishing gear and ice (all provided by Westfield Charters,) the group quickly filled the cooler with their catch – plenty for all to take home.

“Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels deeply appreciates and thanks Westfield Charters for this generous donation,” said Debra Pacos, executive director. “We especially want to thank Nathan for his thoughtfulness and dedication to Meals on Wheels.”

Westfield Charters is an insured, full service fishing charter available for full or half day trips on Eastern Lake Erie. Groups of 1 to 6 anglers enjoy a safe and memorable experience as they fish for (and catch!) trophy Walleye, Lake Trout, Perch and Steelhead.

A proud United Way Community Partner, Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels also receives support for its programs and operations from the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging, RSVP, area foundations, service organizations, churches and individual donors.
