Trout Unlimited President Charles Gauvin was the guest speaker at the SE Regional TU meeting, Saturday, March 9th at 11:00 AM, at the Upper Perkiomen Valley Library, Red Hill, PA (near Green Lane Reservoir in Montgomery County). He gave a slide program on TU projects across the country and discussed the future of Trout Unlimited. Thank you Charles for coming to our meeting and to see couple examples of the stream restoration projects in the area and also for an informed slide presentation from an historical perspective of trout and salmon situation here in North America. It was a well received presentation and was appreciated by all. We thank you for taking the time in visiting us and meeting the members of the southeast Pennsylvania TU chapters.
Charles Gauvin, along with the chapter officers from the southeast region of Pennsylvania, took a tour of the stream restoration projects along the Perkiomen Creek. The tour was guided by Lou Wentz along with Don Douple and Paul Raubertas of the Perkiomen Valley chapter. The Perkiomen Valley Chapter has done a nice job working successfully with land owners, farmers and the public. Congratulations for a nice job done on the Perkiomen Creek and it's tributaries and good luck in the future. Ken Undercoffer, the President of Pennsylvania Trout, was also present at this meeting.
At this meeting Charles Gauvin also presented Ray Young, Jr. of the Southeastern Montgomery County TU, an inscribed pewter platter to acknowledge Ray's years of unselfish work and devotion to his chapter and Trout Unlimited. Without Ray's dedication the SEMCTU Chapter #468 would not be where it is today. Thank you again Ray.
Joe Mihok, Southeast Pennsylvania Regional VP of Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited and of Bucks County TU, was the organizer and host of this meeting. Congratulations Joe, Lou, and the rest of Perkiomen Valley TU chapter and the attendees. This meeting was a great success.
