“The end of a retreat is when the CfR Georgia team has a sit down and collective sigh is heard from the group. We know the impact we have on our participants and the different ways each of the participant’s stories effect us, but then there’s that one participant who gets so completely hooked on fly fishing that it literally changed her LIFE. She’s now fishing, tying flies, taking classes, leading the cub scouts for their fishing badge and of course, telling her CfR story. A story told to a man who was so moved by it he anonymously donated a new set of waders to her. The very short time we spent with her at the retreat and then on the water has had such a rippling effect. It’s incredibly rewarding for us to have been a part of her journey.” – Lynn Lomas, Georgia Program Coordinator
