Veterans take on fly fishing
Submitted By Harold Whitmore
Veterans First Fly Fishing, an organization run entirely by volunteers, is part of the Education Committee of the Northern California Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers. Without question, this program has changed lives. It provides a path away from addiction, self-destructive behavior, and anger as it helps direct the focus of attention and improves development of fine motor skills. Many of the veterans have become VA volunteers themselves, providing valuable assistance and personal experience to help other veterans.
The grant funded program uses it donations for: consumable materials and tools needed for a successful program, food and transportation for veterans participating in outings, and development and construction of adaptive tools and equipment that allow disabled veterans to participate in the sport of fly fishing.
Help aid the Veterans First Fly Fishing program by joining them for a fantastic meal and enjoyable evening in support of its deserving veterans. Your contribution is important to the expansion of this program. They invite you to participate in the continued success of this worthwhile program by making a donation. Attend the dinner and receive a door prize and entry into a silent and live auction.
