Olcott Beach Reels in Title of "Ultimate Fishing Town" | Community Spirit
Olcott Beach may be considered small by population standards, but the area showed they don't think or act that way. Thanks to over 130,000 votes placed, Olcott Beach, N.Y., has achieved the title of "Ultimate Fishing Town" from the World Fishing Network (WFN). Official verification will come on June 6.
Over 100 people came to celebrate the fete at the Town of Newfane community center on May 31, 2012. They were joined, via Skype, by Hastings, Ont. That community and Newfane-Olcott Beach came together to assist in voting. Hastings achieved the Ultimate Fishing Town title held in Canada by WFN.
A true bi-national effort that proved when communities work together, big things can happen.
