Volunteer Instructors Needed Jan/Feb 2018: 4H Fly Tying Classes

Everywhere you look you will find Guild members who enjoy spending their free time teaching and volunteering their time, and being able to pass our knowledge down the younger generations is one thing that helps keep the tradition alive. In the months of January and February Guild member Don Stewart will be running a series of 4H fly tying classes for kids that will run weekly in Middletown, NY. 4H will be supplying all of the materials and volunteers will be working with small groups of kids to help instruct a pattern. There will be other volunteers on hand but more are needed.
