Heroes’ Welcome For Healing Waters Veterans

May 25th, 2017

A rousing reception organized by the Potter County Veterans Service Committee welcomed about a dozen military veterans and their motorcycle escort through Potter County for the tenth annual Project Healing Waters gathering. County employees turned out in force and the committee also provided flags for citizens to wave as the vets passed through town. They were joined by other area veterans riding in an Area Transportation Authority bus to show their support for the special guests. The procession continued through the parking lots of Sweden Valley Manor and Charles Cole Memorial Hospital before a brief stop at American Legion Post 192. It then progressed through Austin to Moore’s Run Fish and Game Preserve. Project Healing Waters is sponsored by the God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Federation of Fly Fishers. Goal is to aid in the veterans’ physical and emotional recovery through fly fishing and fly tying. All activities, services and equipment are provided at no cost, including equipment that accommodates special needs.
