We have received the following request for volunteers needed for an upcoming kids fishing event. Give it some thought about helping so we can discuss at out next meeting.
My name is Michela Williams and I am an intern at the U.S. Forest Service. I contacted you in October about a fishing trip that, unfortunately, got canceled. I am contacting you now in the hopes that you could help me get volunteers for a children’s campout in May. The Children’s Forest Network is hosting its first campout May 6th-7th at Lake Winfield Field Scott. There will be 30 participants total; 25 kids, and 5 adults. It is a half day and the participants would rotate into each activity. We are looking to split the kids into groups of 5 with one adult. So there would be a group of 6 total that the volunteers would need to teach. These children have never been exposed to fishing, so volunteers who are able to teach beginners would be great. Along with volunteers, I would also need fishing supplies. We have poles, but not hooks or bate. If you could please pass this message on to Trout Unlimited volunteers, I would greatly appreciate it. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
