Pennsylvania Veterans to Discover the Healing Power of Fly Fishing on Fabled Spruce Creek

Dominion, a Richmond, Va. – based energy company with extensive operations in Pennsylvania, and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Inc. will host a dozen armed forces veterans receiving care at Veteran’s Hospitals for a three-day fishing trip to one of the most-storied trout streams in the nation – Spruce Creek at Evergreen Farms near State College.
