Several members of CVFF helped introduce members of Mrs' Fry's class to the mysteries of fly casting and fly tying:  Tom Greenup, Norm Chung, Gary Scott, Gene Mahn, and Jimmy Toy.  

The class participates in the Trout in the Classroom program, with over 100 healthy trout fingerlings in their aquarium.

Dear Bill et al ...

It was absolutely great to have ya'll come to Meadows and share your talents. The students were so engrossed in the activities, they stayed for well over an hour after school was officially dismissed. Quite a testimony to their enthusiasm. Please send our heartfelt thanks to all . Hope to see you at a future CVFF meeting.

Sincerely, Jennifer Fry
