Face masks are not mandatory at Riverview. However, we strongly encourage their use, especially during the fly tying sessions. There is a hand sanitizer station available.

Our annual MFFA fund raising banquet scheduled for October 17 at the Viscount Gort has been postponed to next Spring on April 17, 2021. Instead we are planning for an informal pizza night combining our awards evening with silent and brown bag auctions on November 10 at 7:30 PM at Riverview. Auction donations are now being accepted at our weekly meetings.
Don't forget that Orvis, Temple Fork, Simms, and Peak Vises have extended a limited number of discount offers to the club again this year. As in past years we will be selling raffle tickets at the weekly club meetings when they resume in Sept. for a chance to take advantage of these discounts.
