Veazie Salmon Club- More Than Just Fishing
Time to check In with the Veazie Salmon Club. Their next meeting is tomorrow night, and although the main purpose as one might imagine of a Salmon club, is indeed fishing, they have other news to announce.
Veazie Salmon Club provides an annual Scholarship to a deserving student each year attending the University of Maine, and they have been this for over 20 years.
The meeting is open to attend, and even lots of current members will be learning all about this endowment donation for the first time.
What is that statement about doing good things and not boasting about them?
This year the deserving student from the University of Maine that will receive the scholarship is James Pyle.
James is a Junior with a Major in Wildlife Ecology and Military Science Leadership. He is also an Army ROTC cadet. Originally from Fort Wainwright, Alaska, James is excited to be the recipient this year.
Your friends at the Veazie Salmon Club said:
As soon as he heard, he walked right over between classes and signed the release form. He seemed thrilled about the scholarship and is very happy to talk with the Salmon Club members
James will be a guest at the meeting tomorrow night
So will Kevin J Frazier, Chief Financial Officer from the University of Maine Foundation, who will also attend and speak.
So it is a lot more than just fishing.
Not to mention the views from the Veazie Salmon Club. This is a summer view, imagine the vibrant fall foliage.
The meeting is Thursday from 5:30 to 6:45. The Veazie Salmon Club is located at 30Old Country Road in Veazie.
