CARLTON – Fishermen try to catch trout and salmon in October by St. Mary’s Archer’s Club at the Oak Orchard River.

The club started 70 years ago and offers hospitality to many local and visiting fishermen, especially during its annual fishing derby.

The Orleans County Legislature on Wednesday presented the Archer’s Club with a Special Recognition award for its 70 years of dedication and service to the community. The Archer’s Club has 142 members.
