Trout Unlimited Southeastern Montgomery County TU Chapter#468 in Pennsylvania
Update *** February, 2000 ***
Activity report - Fishing rod stringing for the Fishing Derby at Cheltenham Pond sponsored by the Cheltenham Rotary with our TU Chapter assistance.
During our regular Chapter meeting February 8, 2000 at the Pennypack Trust visitor's center, 21 members strung 105 2-piece bamboo rods with 9-foot nylon line with bobbers, sinkers and hooks. The project lasted 2 hours and everyone got a sense of accomplishment in refurbishing these rods for use by the local kids that participate in the Fishing derby. The fishing supplies were donated by Dicks Sporting Goods, 4640 Roosevelt Ave in Philadelphia (initiated by our member Denis Mora) for which our Chapter is greatful. Here's an example of a small donation going a long way to benefit youngsters in their initial introduction to fishing and to their physical environment in their neighborhood.
