Just a few words to say thank you for the opportunity to head our chapter onward and upward. I want to thank everyone for their previous efforts, and I look forward to continuing those efforts in the year to come. Our chapter is growing, and we continue to have a better cash position year over year. I believe our mission, as an active TU chapter should be to continue restoration projects as they become available, and increase the awareness of Trout Unlimited in our area.
We are all involved with Trout Unlimited due to our love of fishing and the outdoors. Our chapter has been successful up to the present due to the work of a handful of members, who without their efforts we would not function. I would encourage everyone to be thinking about how we can be a better chapter, how we can increase our membership, and how we can increase our exposure in the community. In addition, we need to think of a program of events for our monthly meetings to stimulate interest and attendance. I think we are on the right track, and with a little effort and creativity we will be a larger and stronger chapter.
Thank you, and I look forward to a productive year both on and off the stream.
