Order your Golden Anniversary Pin Today!
To celebrate 50 years of Coldwater Conservation efforts in Western Pennsylvania, the Penn's Woods West Chapter of Trout Unlimited has commissioned a Golden Anniversary pin.

The pin that measures 1.25" by 1.25" features the gold Keystone logo of the Chapter along with the familiar leaping trout centered between the years 1963 to 2013.
The versatile pins are a nice addition to a fishing vest, fishing hat, or even a sport coat. They are also a great gift for the upcoming holidays. Proceeds from sales help to support the Chapter in the continuing effort to provide the many conservation and community outreach programs that we sponsor.
Costs of the pins are $5.00 at all Chapter functions.
You can also order your commemorative pin by mail, please send a check made payable to PWWTU in the amount of $7.00 ($2.00 for shipping and handling) to:
