More Cancellations

Sad to report that our Veterans Outing scheduled for May 2 at the Kingston Sportsmen’s Club has been canceled and tentatively rescheduled for May, 1, 2021. The family outdoors event scheduled for May 31 at Keystone State Park has also been canceled.

We will not be having a May meeting, but we may go ahead with the litter pick-up on May 6 if Penn Dot will still haul away the trash. We would all have to keep spread out. For now all clean ups are on hold. Check back here for updates.

FTTU officers and directors will be keeping in touch with each other via emails and video conferencing and will continue to plan for the future.

Some good news, two of three area Trout in the Classroom programs have released their fish and the third has the school principal feeding the trout and will be released soon.

Trout fishing is still on but members are encouraged to follow common sense social distancing protocol, travel to the stream in separate cars, and bring your own drinks and lunches. Of course, most of us prefer to get as much space to ourselves as we can on the stream so that’s helpful for proper stream etiquette. See the PAF&BC guidelines in the previous post.

So, until we meet again, be careful, stay healthy and stay informed on FTTU news with forbestrailtu.org.

Beware of Fraudulent Emails

A couple of us have received bogus emails from someone posing as an FTTU officer asking for assistance. Do not reply to this email or any email of which you do not recognize the sender’s email address. General membership should only receive emails with the official TU masthead.

Fiscal Year Change

The by-laws of FTTU were amended at the October meeting. The chapter’s fiscal year has been changed from October 1 to September 30 to April 1 through March 31. The change was necessary to keep in step with TU national which initiated the change. Annual financial reports will be filed by November 15, 2018 as usual and will be followed by an 18 month fiscal year to adjust to the new schedule.
