General Meeting

Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 6th, 2018 at the Knights of Columbus Hall (152 Litchfield St., Torrington, CT).  All are welcome! We will begin with a fly swap (so bring a fly): go over chapter business:  and follow the meeting with a Guest Speaker.   See Future Events for Details!

The Knights of Columbus hall is located at the corner of Litchfield Street and Prospect Ave. There’s a huge parking lot on the Prospect St side of the building. From the parking lot, there’s a door that is parallel with Litchfield Street, in the rear of the building. Enter through this door, go thru the double doors then at the head of the down-stairway, there’s another door. This is the door to our meeting room.
