President’s Lines June 2016

Hello AFC members. I want to officially welcome Barb and Brian Fayle as our new Hospitality Co-Chairs. We are very excited to have them on the Board. They will be the first faces you see at every monthly meeting so please stop by and introduce yourself.

The hot weather has finally arrived and will be here until October. Time to take your fishing gear to a new destination, whether it’s north to the Rim or White Mountains or west to San Diego. Please make sure to send your pictures to John Doss so they can be posted on the website. We’ll also want to hear your fishing stories at the next meeting.

I came across an interesting bit of history: On June 1, 1933, the World’s Fair opened in Chicago titled, “A Century of Progress”. I cannot imagine what people in 1933 would have envisioned for the next century or how it would shape their and their family’s futures. On January 22, 1962, AFC was founded. For over 50 years, our club has brought many people together.  I can only imagine what the founders and original members would say if they could see us now.

AFC is only as strong as its members. I am very proud of all the hard work by our current members and Board, whose mission is to make the club better tomorrow for all its members and for our community. As President, I will continue to work to make the club better than ever.

From Zane Grey: “If I fished only to capture fish, my fishing trips would have ended long ago.”

See You Next Meeting,

Jim Rondoni
AFC President
