Volunteer Matt Seymour shares the highlights and upcoming events for our Coatesville, PA Program.


You may notice from the photos that our location was changed for one evening to a different building. This new space encouraged “togetherness”. Thirteen volunteers and seven vets managed to find the temporary location. Special citations will be presented to those vets who found us!

A special thanks to the two Kens (VanGilder& Leung) for their photos!
There was one rod builder and 6 vet tyers. Rosado & Argo (woof) returned for a visit from his home in Jersey to finish up a rod. The rest of us tied x-caddis, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Wooley Buggers, etc. At one point in the evening I yelled out,  “How’s everybody doing”? one of our slightly frustrated Wooly tyers cried out, “Slightly better than a dead frog”!  Well “slightly” is better than “the same as” I suppose!
Glad to have Jerry Coviello and Jake Weston back as volunteers. They’re both wonderful guys to have at the table.
Drop Whatever You’re Doing This Weekend!
Our merry band of vets and volunteers will be attending Valley Forge Trout Unlimited’s Annual Trout Show! Details below:
We continue to beseech you ,on behalf of our vets, to keep us in mind for volunteering (we have a list of ways you can help), and donations of equipment or dollars.  You can find the Coatesville Program on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ProjectHealingWatersCoatesvilleVAMC/
