General Chapter Meeting Information

A featured part of almost every month's membership meeting is the guest speaker program.  The Board of Directors spends a lot of time planning and arranging for the featured speakers. We begin by designing a general theme for each month's program and then follow up by identifying and booking potential speakers.

*Please note that the September meeting has been pushed to Wed. 9/26*

Summer is about over and the kids will be going back to school spouting off about their many adventures to their teachers and friends. Many of us also took the time this summer to burn our vacation hours by celebrating the outdoors. As we get together for the first time in several months, the time has arrived for us to channel our inner child and show our friends and family PPTU members what we've been up to all summer.

The stories and photos all vary from close to home trips to wonders outside the states. Several members have jetted around the globe in search of relaxation, sight seeing, and the occasional elusive fish.
Come place yourself in the visual parade of travel and fishing from your fellow TU members. Kick back, grab some popcorn, ask questions or just relive some of the fascinating places our members are sharing.
If you wish to share your adventures, please send me your summer pics with location info: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
See you at the meeting!
