On June 5th at the start of the Golden Age Games designed for veterans who are 55 and older, the VA sponsored a Health and Wellness Expo that featured information tables on a variety of health and wellness services available to VA veterans. PHWFF Anchorage staffed a table designed to illustrate the core activities of fly tying, fly casting, fishing education, rod building, and fishing outings that aid in the emotional and physical rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans.

Jan and PHWFF Participant

Many athletes specifically stopped and talked to us about their local programs in California, Arizona, Montana, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Illinois, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, and New York and some were wearing their PHWFF hats! It was pure joy to listen to them talk about their programs and how PHWFF saved and improved their lives.

A special thanks goes to Leslie Holland-Bartels for helping to staff the information table.

 

Numerous PHWFF volunteers and participants are serving as volunteers for this event during the next five days. Best wishes to all the athletes!
