FLY TYING CLASS -- CHARLIE NORWOOD VA MEDICAL CENTER

Justin Walter (Augusta Project Lead for Project Healing Waters) is looking for volunteers to assist with a Fly Tying Class at the Uptown Clinic of the VA Medical Center in Augusta.

You don't have to know the first thing about fly tying to volunteer!  We need event support as well.

We are currently scheduled for a evening class on April 30th from 6:00 to 8:00. 
The class will be in room 2A-147 (Arts and Crafts Clinic).  PHW will supply all the vices, equipment, and materials needed for this first class.  There are 14 veterans already signed up and very interested.  Since this is the first fly tying class we've done it is imperative that we have a good showing of volunteers to insure future success.  

Please contact Justin at augustaphwff@gmail.com if you are available to assist.
