It is March 2022 and most of the Covid mask mandates have been lifted. Although these mandates have been lifted Covid is still very real so at this point please utilize whatever virus practices that you are personally comfortable with, masks, distance, sanitizer etc. We will be adhering to whatever the current Virus Practices are at the time of the meeting; however, it looks as though there is some light at the end of the Covid tunnel.

 We will be conducting our March meeting at 7:00 pm right after the Fly-Tying Demo, at the Ludlow Elks Club, 69 Chapin Street in Ludlow MA.

March is the time to renew your membership. As we all remember due to Covid membership renewals were suspended until March of 2022, however our Expo has been moved to April so we all have an extra month to renew before being taken off the membership list. I will also be attaching the Renew by Mail this meeting announcement just follow the directions on the form to renew by mail or if you prefer to renew in person at the next meeting or at the April Expo. Please fill out the form and bring it to the next meeting or the Expo to streamline the renewal process.  

Hope to see many of you at this coming meeting.
