The Trout Tale









Casting for Recovery

Here is a link to the webpage describing the Wyoming CFR program. 

Casting For Recovery Wyoming
 
 I am writing to you for 3 reasons:
1.  To inform you about the Wyoming CFR Retreat in 2014.  If you know any women who would like to attend, they can submit their application online at 
www.castingforrecovery.org.  I have also attached a 2014 Retreat Information sheet.


2.  To offer a speaker for one of your meetings  who can tell you more about CFR.  At the meeting, we will discuss the CFR program and volunteer roles such as River Helper/Guide.  The speaker will be a member of our volunteer staff and/or a past participant.  During 2013, we were able to attend 3 TU meetings around the state.  
 
3.  To ask for a donation to the CFR Wyoming Program for the 2014 Retreat.   We raise all the money for the retreats each year.  We do not receive funding from the national organization so every contribution makes a difference to us.  If you would like to make a donation, you can do so online at or by sending a check to Casting for Recovery, c/o Mary Turney, Box 733, Dubois, WY  82513.
 
If you are interested in having a speaker at a meeting or have any questions, please contact me.  All the best to you in 2014!
