Event Details

Wow, it looks like we haven’t had an in person YIR meeting for three years! We are planning on meeting Friday, November 11th, set up and social 5-5:30, at the Poncha Springs Town Hall, 333 Burnett Ave. We will have a pot luck, BYOB, main entree to be provided. Dinner will start at 6 pm, and our meeting will begin after we eat and socialize, while viewing some of your best fish pictures from throughout the year, plus some awards and thank yous! There will be a slideshow of chapter accomplishments, and our most important business, voting for our new slate of Board of Directors, and Officers for 2023.

We are excited to have four new and very qualified candidates joining our BoD. Please see the link provided for their names and bios. One is a past CPC board member, David Moore, who will serve for this coming year of 2023. Rick Helmick and Bill Dvorak are both coming off the board the end of the year. Bill will continue running the BV Fishing Derby, and Rick will stay active with the committees and assignments he currently has. Gene Milus will take over Chris Lamson’s board term, as Chris steps up to serve as our President. Both Secretary Karen Dils and Treasurer Pam Simpson are completing their one year terms and extending for an additional year.

It appears covid, just like the flu, is still part of our lives, so if you are not feeling well, or have been exposed, please stay home.

We’ll post the slideshow on our website after the event, so that all members will be able to see what our chapter has been up to, this past year.
