Events

USM AFS student subunit members have volunteered their time and efforts at multiple events in the local community. We have assisted the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) at numerous events in the past year, including Casting for Conservation, the CCA Annual Meeting and Banquet, and a Family Cookout. Many subunit members also volunteered for local sport fishing tournaments, including the Billfish Tournament and Gorenflo’s Cobia Tournament.
