Ammonoosuc Chapter Trout Unlimited August Newsletter
The chapter Board members have been busy during the past few weeks trying to discover ways to generate funds to keep the chapter treasury solvent. This has become particularly important recently since it is unclear due to an ownership change whether the Tender 5K Walk/Run event will be held any longer; it certainly will not take place in 2020 due to COVID-19. This event by Tender Corporation (now Adventure Ready Brands) in the past had contributed generously to Ammo TU and was a Corporate Member of TU National. Maintenance of our treasury is important because the Ammo Chapter has made a regular practice of contributing to events for kids and always a pledge of a cash contribution is required when applying for outside funding support for conservation projects. A promising opportunity for funding was recently offered by the Littleton Food Coop to apply for consideration as Partner of the Month in 2021. Applications were due by August 1. https://www.littletoncoop.com/about/partnerofthemonth/ We are attaching a link to a letter from Schuyler Sweet, Ammo TU Chapter President, to the Coop to justify our application. The letter summarizes all our current and more recent past activities and is an opportunity for Ammo TU members to learn in some detail the chapter activities and to share in the pride of our accomplishments. A slideshow/video link is also provided below.
