January at TVTU?

YIKES!! So much for our typical Oregon sunshine! Now we get solidified 'sunshine' and the associated re-education of how to drive when our rain turns to a more tangible product. Hopefully, everyone has been warm and dry and if you ventured out your waders were leak-free and your cleats held firm. Our local weather prognosticators are claiming we'll be back to our temperate wet selves just in time to meet this next week - in the meantime, enjoy the newsletter in front of the fireplace!

The latest issue is on the internet via Jerry our diligent editor/assembler - check out what your chapter has been up to!

Christmas for Coho is underway! Tree collection is January 7th and January 14th this year - tell your neighbors. Better yet, be neighborly and haul there tree and yours down to one of our depots and help us turn it into Coho and Steelhead habitat. If you play your cards right - your neighbor might foot the bill and cover the cost of your tree as well....depends on your neighbor, never can tell!
