Project Healing Waters: Fall is on the Way

As we look forward to cooler weather and enjoying the change in seasons, September has shown itself to be an extremely busy month as well. We are back at the American Legion for our regular meetings and held our first monthly volunteer meeting since the Spring. We also hosted a table at Frederick’s “In The Streets” (big thanks to Hunting Creek Outfitters for sponsoring our table) and capped off the month with a trip back to Adamstown for some farm pond fishing. It’s great to see all of the participation from both the veterans and volunteers at all of these events and it speaks volumes to the community that we are building.

There are a couple of milestones coming up that everyone should be aware of. As of October 1,

Project Healing Waters moves into Phase 5 Overnight Outings are now a possibility. There will also be a fundraising event on October 9 at the Thurmont Sportsmen’s Club – Sporting Clay & Trap Shooting. The cost is $100 per shooter with PHWFF keeping $25 per participant. For more information, please reach out to Dave Wooster or Larry Forte.
