The Marcia Breskin Memorial Fund is underway.by Peter HaightWe are asking for donations through June. As many club members are well aware, Marcia was a devoted member along with her husband Paul. She worked tirelessly arranging for the auctions that were the financial lifeblood of the club for years. She served as membership chair for as long as I can remember, and volunteered for work in Trout in the Classroom on most of its field . Marcia was also a Past President and recipient of the Gary LaFontaine Service Award. A marvelous fly tyer, I remember her tying flies at a club “Casting and Blasting” outing in Long Beach, using only her fingers - no vise! She and husband Paul fished everywhere in the West, and I believe fished in New Zealand several times.For many of us in Wilderness she was simply an inspiring and caring spirit – the very best example for any club member to emulate. She remained brave and smiling, even while suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Ironically it was Covid that finally brought Marcia down last year.The Club’s board has blessed the creation of this fund. I have discussed the project with Paul, who is fully supportive of it, and its purpose to support the club’s year-end charitable gift program, donating to various fishing organizations and conservation efforts.Please consider a generous gift. I am sending $500 today as an inaugural donation. Send checks to Tom Rasmussen, Treasurer, 3921 Mesa Street, Torrance, CA 90505, payable to Wilderness Fly Fishers but on the check write that it is for the Marcia Fund. Or if you wish, you can use a credit card on the website.
