"END OF YEAR THOUGHTS - RENEWING THE VISION..."

~  DECEMBER 2017  ~ 

 As I sit here to write December’s President’s Line, I am filled with much gratitude for all the gifts that have come to me this year. I’ve just returned from upstate where I enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with my family and friends. I hope that everyone also had a wonderful holiday!

On the drive up and back, along many rivers, I was reminded of how lucky I am to have these beautiful waters that have given me much peace and fishing pleasure throughout my life. I hope from the bottom of my heart that the many waters I’ve enjoyed will be here for many generations to come. With this in mind I feel a tremendous responsibility to do my best to make the possibility a reality. This is at the core of why TU exists. Ask yourself, Is this why we belong to TU? Or do we have little personal reasons? Or maybe we have both?

I invite you to come to the next chapter meeting on Monday, December 11th, 7:30 PM and share your reasons, hopes, and desires with your constituents and the AFTU Board of Directors. Let’s re-build a vision of what we want to do, and see if it is possible. With your input, we the Board will structure a strategic plan and a working chapter to achieve our common goals and have fun along the way.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your continued support of our chapter. To express our gratitude, we invite you to come to the end of year Holiday meeting, and enjoy our home cooked goodies (maybe some store-bought food too!). Let’s break bread together, have some fun, and share some ideas for the coming year. Bring a friend or family member along.

I sincerely hope to see you there,

Best wishes and...
   

Tight lines!!

        Tony Ertola,  President

Newsflash

 IN MEMORIAM…

    It is with sadness to report the recent passing of AFTU member Joe Brescia on November 30th 2017. We will miss Joe’s smile & enthusiasm at Saturday morning fly tying sessions, and his laughter on the annual West Branch trip. Our condolences to his family & friends. For those wishing to add a few words of comfort an “obit tree page” has been set-up in his memory… >>>Joseph A. Brescia<<<
