Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Reeling in Success

  • Print


I have a list of wonderful people in our area that I have wanted to meet, but somehow have never had the chance. Once person on my list was E.B Garner of Milwaukee.  After visiting him and his wife in their Milwaukee home, I'm sorry it took so long. 
For the past 15 years, Garner has been holding free fishing clinics for city kids and adults of all ages. It's his passion, and his mission, and his own way of giving back. His clinics are legendary, and young people love them.
Garner tells me the story of one young man who was acting up. E.B promised the kid that he would take him fishing if his grades improved. Well, the boy was so excited he started doing well in school to his mothers amazement. Suddenly, E.B realized that fishing could turn around the lives of troubled kids. 
Coming up in a few weeks, I'll tell you more about E.B Garner and the 15th annual fishing clinic and outing. Garner is the kind of father and grandfather and role model that we need in Milwaukee. I'm glad I had the chance to meet a man that is certain to inspire you. Look for my report on E.B Garner coming May 21st in Positively Milwaukee on Live at Five.
