Changing of the Guard

Post date: Dec 2, 2015 1:56:02 PM

The chapter is ready for a changing of the guard. I want to thank everyone for the enjoyable, rewarding experience I had as your president. I’d like to summarize the many accomplishments we’ve had in the last two years:

- Our treasury has grown, thanks to Ken, Tom and a cooperative stock market.

- Thankfully we have quite a few new, younger members. Unfortunately we have had a lots of old timers retire from the active ranks.

- We developed a formal Power Point “Library Presentation” for perspective members and/or fly fishers, and made three successful presentations.

- We succeeded in getting the Sparta Glen Brook Restoration project off the ground.

- Three well-attended chapter fishing trips are now routine, including a salt water trip.

- Project Healing Waters has finally got off the ground at FSB. Thank you, Bobby.

- In the last two years we developed and learned how to maintain a fine website. Thanks John and Mike.

- While there hasn’t been much change, we continue to run a successful TIC program, thanks to Willi.

- I can’t say enough about Sue’s efforts to keep our routine business and programs running. I will be forever grateful for all the work she has done and continues to do.

Don’t forget that our Holiday party is at the Sparta VFW on December 16th. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
