The Cameron Lions Club will sponsor their annual Cameron Fishing Festival August 1-3 at Cameron Jetty Pavilion - 799 Davis Road, in Cameron. In addition to the great fishing, food, entertainment, and fun, it's all for a great cause - money raised goes back to community youth programs and organizations, like the Louisiana Lions Crippled Children's Camp in Leesville, the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation in New Orleans, and the Cameron Lions Club Scholarship Program.
