November / December Meeting

President’s Corner
Mike Bryant (

Lately I have been reminded on how we can and do impact the lives of others.  It’s been fascinating to watch my three year old granddaughter gain awareness of the world around her. As we’ve turned over rock s looking for bugs in the yard,walked in the woods or chased ducks around the pond , she is becoming aware of nature. I hope that I can instill the love of nature and the outdoors in her that my grandfather gave to me. We all have the opportunity to influence lives on a very personal level. I would hope each and everyone of us makes the investment to share our love of nature with at least one other person, especially our youth.  It’s our future. As we close out 2013, I am excited about our expanded plans for 2014. We will be holding a major fundraiser, supporting youth education via the TroutCamp, building on our membership education programs and expanding our Chapter trips.

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. Be safe and I will see you at the
December meeting.
