At the September Chapter meeting, a vote was taken to enter into an agreement with Project Healing Waters. This agreement allows for the Chapter to work with the local Veterans Administration to hold a program in this area.
The local VA is excited about this venture and will support the Chapter in any way needed. On Sunday September 30 at 8 am, Fox & Friends Weekend will have a story on the New York City program. This will be a great opportunity to become familiar with this program and hope you are able to watch.
Our Chapter has agreed to have 2 fly tying classes a month and to provide a minimum of 2 instructors at each class. After some flies have been tied, we will be getting out and doing fly casting instruction. Sometime down the road, we will hopefully be able to do some fly fishing.
We are still in the very early stages of this program and a lot of work lies ahead. We have only had 5 people commit to helping with the program and we can use help.
We can use you no matter if you tie flies or your skill in fly fishing. There will be something to do at all events so please consider helping these great men and women who have given so much of themselves for us.
This is not only a great opportunity for the Chapter, but also for the Veterans in our area.
