October 13, 2016 is TIC Egg Day!

Post date: Dec 15, 2016 3:32:24 PM

On Thursday, October 13, seven Fred S. Burroughs volunteers will be delivering fertilized rainbow trout eggs to twenty-three teachers in as many schools participating in this year's Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program. The eggs will be ready at 9 AM at the Pequest Trout Hatchery, from where the volunteers will fan out across the Northern New Jersey area with their precious cargo. To have so many members of our chapter offering up their time and energy for this great cause is nothing more than fantastic. This even more so since another group of chapter volunteers also will be busy helping with float stocking the Flatbrook on the same day, followed on October 14 by another day of volunteering at a planting event at the Glen Brook in Sparta NJ. This event is held in cooperation with a class of the Pope John XXIII Regional High School of Sparta, NJ. Thank you to all who make our Chapter so very much alive and well!
