Hello Everyone --

Just wanted to get out an update on upcoming Foothills TU happenings. Our December meeting will be dinner and fellowship at El Jinete mexican restaurant in Clarkesville on Tuesday December 12th at 6pm. We were unable to secure reservations for our normal Thursday night meetings, so we opted for Tuesday the 12th. Please put this on your calendars and plan to attend. We had a great time last year and this year should be no different.
The Hoot on the Hooch has been set for March 23rd 2024. Please add this to your calendars and plan to attend and help out. This is our main fundraiser for the year and allows us to make a difference in our community. This year, the dream trip winners will be announced at the ‘Hoot !! Hopefully this will give us a boost in attendance. Please start gathering items for our silent auction and bucket raffles, as these are important to our fundraising effort.
Dream Trip tickets are on sale now !! This is the Georgia TU Council’s fundraising event that makes Trout Camp possible. Without this fundraising event, Trout Camp would not exist. Guy Eroh, Film & Video Chairman for the Georgia Council put together this film made at last years Trout Camp:
Give it a view and see the difference Trout Camp makes in these kids lifes. Please be generous in your support of the raffle, Trout Camp is a wonderful opportunity that is supported by all of us. There are many fantastic prizes available, the grand prize truly is a Dream Trip that everyone would love to take. You can view the prizes and purchase tickets at this link :
Remember to designate Ga Foothills as your chapter as we receive $3 for each ticket we sell. This just helps us to do more good in our community.
I have received an application for the upcoming Trout Camp for a grandson of a couple of our members. We will discuss at an upcoming meeting. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving spending quality time with family and friends ! I look forward to seeing you all at our dinner meeting on Dec 12th.
