Hello Fellow Anglers and Conservationists,
Like any other individual, business, student, or worker, Project Healing Waters has also had a tough year. Since March, all we can do is have “virtual” meetings – which we have been doing about twice weekly, tying flies or showing an educational video. We are still not permitted to meet face to face until at least the end of the year. Since much of our population is more vulnerable, our recovery program is quite conservative. Due to the overall situation, our fundraising has also been disrupted significantly. That said, perhaps our biggest annual fundraiser is coming up shortly. Our “Healing Saturday” is September 26. This is normally a time when we’ll get together at a local fly shop, have some raffles, and auction off gear in order to raise money, in addition to the online contributions that we get. We can’t do that this year. Online is the basically the only way we can receive funding. All that said, I would like to encourage you to go online and make a contribution. We have this set up now so you can donate directly to the JBLM Program. Just use the following link on our Facebook site or go directly to our Network For Good:

Help provide disabled veterans with the support they need on their journeys to recovery. Make a difference today! We are unique in that our volunteers are teaching classes on an on-going, long term basis. It is much more than a one day fishing trip. For many participants, the socialization and camaraderie of the classes are just as important as the fishing outings.
