Back In The Maine Stream seeks new members. The non-profit organization of disabled veterans with a strong desire to help other disabled Maine veterans increase their quality of life and heal physical and emotional trauma through recreational fishing.

Honorably discharged Maine veterans with a disability of 10 percent or more are eligible for membership. Members help organize fundraisers, go on scheduled fishing trips, attend monthly meetings, and assist other veterans in doing the same.

The meetings cover organizational business and typically include some kind of learning sessions like fly tying, knot tying, rod-building, fishing techniques, discussing upcoming fishing trips, and the usual fishing stories.

The meeting takes place at 9 a.m. the fourth Wednesday of each month at the American Legion Post 205, 396 Eastern Ave. in Augusta.

For more information or to make a donation, call Marc Bilodeau at 998-3569 or Bob Pelletier at 468-7417.
