  1. I am an active volunteer in most of the social events happening in Bellevue and Redmond City. In the year 2014, i have personally attended NWFL event and impressed with social gatherings from various places of North West.

    As I am very much involved in volunteer activities, i wanted to extend my support for this May 2014 event .

    Please let me know if you need any further information.

    Thanks and regards,
    Suresh Thanda

  2. I’d like to participate in the current or future events. Getting kids involved in fly tying by making their own lapel pins is what I’ve been doing in west seattle at the fall festival.
