Patriotic Welcome For TU ‘Healing Waters’ Veterans

May 23rd, 2018

Disabled military veterans participating in this year’s Trout Unlimited Project Healing Waters received a warm, patriotic welcome as they passed through the county on Tuesday afternoon. County employees stepped outside to join others greeting the special guests, who were escorted through Shinglehouse, Coudersport and Austin enroute to the the First Fork Lodge in Costello. 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 by introducing or rebuilding the skills of fly fishing and fly tying, and by supporting these skills as lifelong recreation. All activities, services and equipment are provided at no cost, including equipment that accommodates special needs. Participants who are now enjoying their stay in Potter County come from Pennsylvania VA hospitals and are headquartered at Moore’s Run Fish and Game Preserve.
