BTV Gallery Helps Veterans Heal

News

For the month of May, a Church Street art and craft gallery will team up with Project Healing Waters to display fly fishing themed artwork.

Project Healing Waters is a national non-profit that recently opened a chapter in the Burlington area.

It works with disabled veterans teaching them how to tie flies and take them out on fishing trips.

Organizers thought Frog Hollow would be a good fit to show off their work.

Veteran says having a hobby is a good way to connect with others.

“For myself as a veteran, when I came home, there was a loss sense of community, loss of the brotherhood, camaraderie,” says Joshua Gerasimo of Project Healing Waters. “I‘m fortunate enough to work at the VA, and I try to create that sense of brotherhood and connections between veterans, and if I can do that through fly fishing, that’s great.” 

There will also be a silent auction of donated artwork, as well as fly fishing gear. Proceeds will go to the Vermont chapter of Project Healing Waters.
