TQL Gone Fishin'
The third annual Take a Warrior Fishing Day at Caesar Creek will have a TQL flair.
The company donated $1,000 to the help sponsor the Sept. 19 event in Waynesville, Ohio, about an hour north of TQL headquarters. It provides a new fishing pole, tackle box, T-shirt and more to each participating veteran.
In addition, the TQL Sportsmen’s Club – a group of about 240 outdoor enthusiasts within the company who enjoy hunting, fishing and wildlife conservation - will provide about 20 volunteers to serve as fishing guides and boat captains for the veterans.
Seth S. – a national sales executive and head of the TQL Sportsmen’s Club – is looking forward to getting on the water this weekend.
“This is the first event like this we’ve done where we could do some service,” he said. “I thought it tied in well with TQL’s commitment to veterans and with what we like to do. It’s a great fit.
“These guys, all gave some and some gave all. You get to say thanks for their service and I hear there are some pretty good stories these guys tell.”
About 50 military veterans ranging from the War on Terror and going as far back as WWII are expected to fish with their families. The event at Caesar Creek State Park is one of 15 across the country and the only one in the Midwest.
The program’s main goals are to increase family interaction, encourage outdoor recreation and support positive social interactions that help transitioning service members rebuild connections with the civilian world.
TQL and the Sportsmen are working with the Catch a Special Thrill (C.A.S.T.) for Kids Foundation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Veterans Affairs and other volunteer groups to make the event happen
