Our 52nd Birthday Celebration and Annual Banquet is only a few days away and I really hope you can join us this year.
It is always a fun evening. Great friends and fellowship, plenty of bucket and silent auction items, the Thomas & Thomas rod & reel raffle, the travel rod raffle, and much more. We already have some exciting items for you to bid on and win!
The banquet will be on Saturday, October 26th, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the AMVETS Valley Memorial Post #9 in Middletown, MD. As a reminder, all items in the bucket raffle and silent auction are donated by both members and friends of PVFF. This tradition has served us well and it is amazing what is donated every year. This year, the list includes several fly rods, baked goods, selections of flies, and the list goes on. Another thing to consider is that we have items that are not fish related and many are tasty items. Bring your spouse or friend and see what he or she can find to win and take home. This year, we are bringing back a couple of popular activities from last year, including a contest to see who can tie the best fly — while blindfolded!!
Again, save the date … October 26th … and go fishing as often as you can until then.
