Willem Lange, fisherman and accomplished outdoorsman, will be the guest speaker at the Central Vermont Trout Unlimited (CVTU)’s 43rd annual fundraising banquet. All are invited to listen to Willem as he entertains with a charming New England storytelling style that is all his own.
The festivities take place on Saturday, March 29th at 5pm, at the Sunset Ballroom atop the Comfort Inn and Suites at 1712 Shelburne Road, South Burlington. Doors open at 5pm, with dinner served at 6:30. The evening includes both live and silent auctions, raffles and door prizes. Ethan Merrill, of the Merrill family of auctioneers, will graciously donate his time and talents to the live auction portion of our program.
“We have so many wonderful and exciting prizes up for grabs,” remarked Gary West, CVTU’s Chapter President. “Our grand prize is a five day, four night extreme fishing package for two, on the storied West Branch of the Delaware River in the Catskill region of New York.” Other prizes include: a Sage “99” steelhead rod and reel package; guided fishing trips; collectible artwork; restaurant gift certificates; and overnight get-aways at Jay Peak Resort and Quimby Country Inn.
Admission is $35.00 and the event is open to the public. Tickets may be purchased at the Classic Outfitter in the Blue Mall in South Burlington, or online at www.vttu.org. Support your local Trout Unlimited chapter and help protect our precious Vermont rivers and streams.
