It is with great respect that we say goodbye to Mark Rogers as he has announced his retirement from the TVTU Board. Mark brought a great attitude to the board along with a willingness to grow our Chapter Outreach efforts in the local community as well as with our younger citizens and future fishing conservationists! Mark has moved and though it was within the state, he is no longer in our chapter area and has chosen to shift to join our friends in the Clackamas River Chapter.
We all would like to give our SINCEREST THANKS to Mark and and his wife Janet for the time and dedication they gave our Chapter! We expect to see them in the future and wish them the best in their new home!
