Honor Flight

A very nice article by Susan Hurd Barr, Kelly Kingery's sister-in-law, about the Honor Flight program and Honor Flight Dayton. Definitely worth reading about this wonderful effort to honor our veterans.

Flies Needed for Auction

It appears as though we are not getting the numbers of flies donated to the auction as in the past.  If you haven’t already, please tie up some flies - they are great sellers and bring in a substantial amount of funds to support club activities and operations.  Don’t have enough time to tie new ones before the auction?  Then consider putting together a collection of flies from your existing inventory for inclusion in the auction.  Please contact Carl Markstrom - cmarkstrom@woh.rr.com for any questions about submitting flies or getting them to him in advance of the auction.

MVFFEO, Inc. has been approved as a 501(c)(3)

The new Miami Valley Fly Fishers Education Outreach, Inc. has been approved by the IRS. We can now start receiving tax deductible donations and apply for grants. This will allow us to do great things through the Educational Outreach. We welcome new and increased support of our current programs, Healing Waters, various Veterans programs, Mad River Clean Up, and the opportunity to get involved in new exciting challenges.

You will be hearing more about what this means to the future of our organization. Learn more about this new endeavor here. Thank you Sam Brown for all your work in making this happen.
