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.
If you can make all or even only one of the dates on the following list Please contact Don Stewart ASAP via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or by phone: 845-978-6512 or 845-342-3371
The classes will be held on the following dates:
January 11th, 18th, 25th and February 1st and 8th. All classes will begin at 7pm
