Veterans Service Program

The Veterans Service Program is an outreach program to all of our veterans and their families.  The ostensible purpose of the program is to provide a fishing experience to veterans who live in the region - but the program provides a great deal more - a chance for the veterans of socialize, work together with each other and with the volunteers, and to provide assistance to those who need assistance.
