The overall purpose of the meeting was to get the Volunteer ‘Army’ ready for the upcoming fishing season.  Of note was that about half of the volunteers are also Program participants!  We also gave Michael Turner and his Corporation a certificate of appreciation for funding this year’s fly rods/reels for our Summit County trips.
