Project Healing Waters Farmington Trip

By  | 

PHW VetsSeveral members of our chapter have been working with the Farmington Valley chapter to support the Project Healing Waters program at the Newington VA Hospital.

In September, the group took their first trip to the water. A local landowner graciously provided access from his property and the vets got to fish the flies that they had tied in classes as well as put to good use the casting techniques learned on lawns. Overall the day was perfect. The weather cooperated and so did the trout.

Many thanks to the volunteers from Farmington Valley and Candlewood Valley TU who not only attended the day but the countless others who make trips to the VA for monthly classes and support the program in other ways.

And a special congratulations to the veterans. It’s just the beginning!
