Steve Harrington has been the face of the Erie Canal Fishing Derby since he founded it 27 years ago. Over those years he has visited almost every business from Tonawanda to Albion, seeking sponsors and new friends and found many of both. His goal in starting the derby was to create an event that would bring families together to enjoy the outdoors.
Lynn, Steve's wife of nearly 50 years, together with granddaughter Stephanie (and other family members) has decided to continue the derby for as long as they can. They have also decided to rename the 28th Annual Erie Canal Fishing Derby. The derby will henceforth be known as:
The Stephen C. Harrington Memorial
