Home Waters Program Helps Veterans

At River Wealth Advisors, our fascination with all things river goes beyond just our name. Bob Caplan and Ed O’Gorman are long-time fly fishing enthusiasts and members of Trout Unlimited. Trout Unlimited is a nation-wide group dedicated to conservation, protection and restoration of our country’s cold water resource. Trout Unlimited members also support a number of public service projects including outreach to disabled veterans to provide them with the chance to learn the basics of fly fishing and enjoy an outing at local streams.

Earlier this summer, Ed O’Gorman’s creek side home was the host location for a day of camaraderie and fishing for 21 disabled vets from the Harrisburg Veterans’ Center. Members from the local Trout Unlimited chapter shared a lunch, catered by Keystone Apple Inc., with the veterans and then set off to fish for trout on Clarks Creek or bass and bluegills in the O’Gormans’ pond. It was a great success, with some of the vets sharing that it was one of the best days they ever experienced.
