Hello everyone,

As most of you know Livingston suffered a catastrophic flood last week. Many homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed in town. Particularly hard hit was the Stafford Animal Shelter which lost their building and everything in it when the flood hit. There are funds set up to help the residents deal with losses but the animal shelter can really use help. Therefore from today until the end of July we're donating $10.00 from every retail fly line sale to the shelter. It's a start.....

Tom

Quick update: Our local Community Foundation will be matching all donations until the end of July so your $10.00 becomes $20.00 - good deal. We recently had a couple from Big Timber donate $100,000.00 to rebuild the shelter. Private contributions now total over $122,000.00!

Thanks to you all,

Tom

Hello everyone,

Well we raised $265.00 for the Stafford Animal Shelter through line sales! With the matching funds from the local Community Foundation you donated $530.00 for the animals. Alexis and I want to offer our sincere appreciation for all the help and a special thank you to those added an additional contribution and who donated on their own.

Tom

Thanks! We did get a lot of support and several members made private donations which was very much appreciated. The goal is $700,000.00 to completely rebuild and they're over halfway there at this point.

Tom
