(Or Many Hands Make Light Work!)

(from Jersey Coast Anglers Association June 2009 Newsletter)
So, you like to fish, but find yourself bored on rainy days when you are wishing that you could be fishing. Why not do the next best thing? Join us at the JCAA office here in Toms River to TALK about fishing. I don’t mean to brag, but our volunteers are among the most talented and enthusiastic anglers in New Jersey. They make the office hum with their passion for the sport. Why not join us to soak up that energy?
JCAA is kicking off a slightly more formal and less weather dependent volunteer program, and we’d love to have you on board. You can be part of helping our sport with your participation in the volunteer corps – a valuable program that reaps great benefits for our shared goals of increased public access, conservation of nursery areas, sound science and fair and equitable quota.
Please look over the volunteer update sheet on the website (JCAAVolunteer2009.pdf) to see where you can fit into our laughter-filled days. And if hanging out in the office is not for you, we also have a calendar of events that you can help with, such as the Atlantic City International Power Boat Show, our famously well-attended Sports Person of the Year Dinner Dance, our Fluke Tournament Gala celebration at Trump Marina Hotel Casino…the list really does go on and on. Please let me know of your interest and I will sign you up straight away. Every minute, every hour, makes a difference for our sport.
If you have any questions about the volunteer program and its benefits, please give me a call here at the JCAA office. 732-506-6565. JCAA’s strength resides with our amazing volunteer corps, so if any organization understands and appreciates the time and effort of volunteers, it is definitely your friends here at JCAA. Won’t you join us? Thank you so much for your support!
