BIG BROTHER DAY 2010 - June 19th?
Molly has suggested June 19th this year. Keep in mind Father's Day is the 20th (Sunday).

We need volunteers to take the kids fishing, they don't have a Father's Day per se so I am sure this will be good timing to take their mind off of that.

We'll meet at the refuge and take the kids fishing on Morris Island. There will be a shore lunch and wiffle ball game as well. It will be fun and your costs are tax deductible.

Please RSVP to confirm that you'll be keeping this tradition going strong in 2010.

Molly at Big Brothers has made the announcement.


Hope you can pitch in thanks!

Juro, great cause and I've done a bunch, but have to defer this year for my son, Brad's wedding on the same day. For those on the fence, you won't regret participating once you see the true enjoyment the kids have in this activity.

Thanks Jim and congrats to Brad!!

This date will approach quickly - still in need of volunteers!

I hope to come; I'm trying to find a stand-in for an event here that weekend.

I have tentative plans to be on the cape from the 12th-19th.... If they work out I will definitely help out. Sorry to be so wishy washy but it's hard to plan while interviewing.

Put it on the resume:

Unselfishly volunteers to teach the art of flyfishing and appreciation of the outdoors to youths missing a traditional family structure on Father's Day on the National Wildlife Refuge.

Look forward to it.

Checked the schedule and I am FREE to participate. Hopefully I can get the sand out of the action of my cheap surf casting reel that I brought to the last one I attended- as much time as we spend trying to teach the kids how to fly cast, we might also want to spend a few seconds reminding them NOT to put the reels (spinning or fly) down on the sand:roll:

Great looking crew shaping up for this event! The kids will be elated but we can still may need more. I'll find out this week.

I'll also take the following actions -

1) follow up with Molly Dinsmore at BB for their headcount
2) stop in at Monomoy to introduce myself to the new mgmt (Mike Brady is now in AK)
3) pick up the usual gummy fish and prize packs

Mentors are invited to my place for Chatham-style barbeque dinner after the event.

Juro, I have checked up my calender & asked the boss, I need her car:hihi:

I am in

Quentin 06-06-2010 07:35 PM

I'm IN! I missed the last one or two, so I'm really looking forward to being there this year!

Great to hear we have a good showing this year! I will talk to Molly over at BB/BS Greater Boston today and give her the good news :biggrin:
