Take a Vet Fishing...

Our church has a new program that is rapidly growing. It is the Veterans Outreach program. It is also known as the "Take a Vet Fishing" project. This program brings Veterans who are blind or struggling with PTS to Killiams point or other water front locations to fish with them for the day.

The leaders of this program go out of their way to make sure that these Vets have the best of times. They also go out of their ways because they are the ones picking them off and dropping them off at the VA in West Haven.

Because this is a growing program the money that is needed is a significant sum. We have been having many fundraisers like a car wash and a pasta dinner. The program is hoping to get a few grants and many donations for this upcoming season.
