On Wednesday, October 2nd, six SMRFO volunteers served as boat captains for 17 patients from the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Washington, DC. The patient spent a beautiful day on the Patuxent River catching dinner for their evening fish fry back at the Center.
The volunteers serving as boat captains included David Meiser, Parran Wilkinson, Russell Bowie, David Seagle, Julian Tsai, and Martin Duby. Other members who served as first mates or hospital support included Judi Tsai, David Hersh, Bill Bonner, Jeff Stevenson, and Phil Zalesak.
The patients had great weather and caught dozens of perch and spot with an occasional toad fish, puffer fish, flounder, or crab. All patients and volunteers were treated to a Mission BBQ lunch served by the Greenwell Foundation which served as the sponsor for this event.
