I got this message from Gayland Hachey a few days ago:

To anyone that is a Veazie Salmon Club Member we have shut down all of the utilities to the club and Claude Westfall is taking all of the club pictures and memorabilia down to the Atlantic Salmon Museum. This is all do to the lack of members and funding when the funds run out this fall we will have to let the club go to the town for back taxes..Gayland Hachey

Another big chunk of tradition and history going down the tubes - it's hard to imagine that the other clubs aren't far behind...

That's really too bad, end of an era.

I spent quite a few nice days there in the early 80’s to early 90’sbefore heading down to fish Wringer Pool. This is too bad.

Although I never fished for the salmon there, I just hate seeing this type of history become, well, history.....
