Notes From Our President
Howdy! Welcome to the summer edition of our TFPA newsletter. 

Were you one of the 100 people who attended the annual meeting? If so, thank you for attending and to all our sponsors who help keep the cost of the meeting down and goes towards our scholarship fund. If you did not attend, please consider joining us next year in Southlake, Tx May 15-17. A summary of the event is included later in this newsletter.
To find out what is happening within our organization and for contact information, our website is being updated regularly. Please check it out at www.tfpa.org. 
Our next event is the annual dove hunt on Oct. 7. Registration will be on our website and emails will be sent out soon.
If you have ideas for the TFPA please let me know.
All the best,
Janet Adams, President.
