50th Anniversary LCFF Calendar

We are putting together a 2020 LCFF calendar with a 50th anniversary theme and need your help assembling pictures and articles of interest related to the club's history.

Photos of founding members (bonus  if they are in groups), significant club outings and/or events throughout club history (example; the old rearing ponds) are especially sought after.

If you have any photos or documents, stories, anecdotes, etc that may be worthy of gracing our calendar pages please send them to Jeff Sowders and CC me as I'll be helping Jeff on this project. We are looking for colorful excerpts of club history to scatter among the photos.

We do need these before Christmas, earlier is better, in order to get calendar published before January meeting. Maybe the week before Christmas is a better deadline.

We'll select the best available so the more choices we have the better.

Also - we are in discussion about putting together this kind of info for the 50th anniversary so no submission will go to waste, even if not making the calendar 

If you can send a photo by email, send it to LVprinter@MinutemanPress.com

Also, include my email address jeffnkathysowders@gmail.com.  

Minuteman is building a photo library for us to use when formatting them on the calendar. Be sure to mention that the photo is for the LCFF calendar.

Photos of current members and their fishing buddies (and fish) are also wanted; not just old member photos.  Can't guarantee that we will use them, but you might find your photo on the calendar.

Jeff's email is jeffnkathysowders@gmail.com and his phone number is 360-355-5623.

Thanks and look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

50th Anniversary Calendar

This month begins our year of celebrating 50th anniversary of our founding and will be handing out a 50th anniversary calendar to kick of the festivities. Jeff Sowders and Ron Pihl teamed up to create a calendar that we hope you will find a worthy representation of the club and our history.
Thanks to all who provided photos and regrets we were not able to get them all in. We had so
many great ones to choose from for such a limited canvas. If you don’t get a calendar check with Glenn to make sure you are current with dues and we’ll make sure you are made whole.

Annual LCFF Auction

Reminder our January meeting will be our annual club fundraising auction. Never too early to put some thought into what you could contribute and we can expect this to be a higher cost year as we fund the
anniversary events.
