President’s report

·         Rich participated in a Trout in the classroom project at a Hatboro school (grades 2nd & 5th).  The day involved releasing their fish into the Neshaminy Creek at Tyler State park, fly fishing demonstrations/ lessons along with some stream ecology.  The kids enjoyed the day and learned a lot about Trout.
