Our club was honored to have Sandi Bridge with North Carolina Wildlife come and visit with us. We learned that the funding for the wildlife departments is through fishing and hunting licenses as well as sell of fishing tackle and boating sales. They also receive funding through federal grants. We also got to try our luck at "fishing" in the parking lot. They have a trailer with fishing gear. They use this to help expose those who may not have the resources to learn about fishing.

We couldn't be any prouder of one of our youngest members Rebecca. Rebecca is a Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist (CPO) that work at the Hanger Clinic. Rebecca saw a need and took it upon herself to fill it. In the process of working with children in need of prosthetists. She realize that these little ones would be able to cope and feel more comfortable having a "Friend" that they could share what they are going through. So she collected funds to purchase dolls and replace the dolls limes with prosthetist ones. So that the children would have a doll that was like them. This endeavor is something she takes great pride in. Our club takes pride in having members like Rebecca and helping facilitate her vision.
