Letter: Thanks for support of Let’s Go Fishing

Email

The Headwaters Chapter of Let’s Go Fishing wants to take this opportunity to thank all of the individuals and community groups who have helped make this year a success. The support for this valuable program for senior citizens has come in many forms. Some have given monetary donations, some have volunteered hours on the pontoon and on the LGF Board of Directors, others have purchased ads on the pontoon. Local car dealerships have helped by supplying us with trucks to pull the pontoon and Ace Hardware has graciously allowed us to park the pontoon in their lot when it is not on the area lakes.

A huge thanks goes out to Jill and the Community Education staff for their work in scheduling all of the Let’s Go Fishing trips.

As we look forward to next summer, we are excited about the growth we have seen and the positive response to this valuable community service project.

If you would like to help, more volunteers are needed for the pontoon trips, board members are needed to replace current board members, and donations are still needed to pay for the pontoon. Through past donations, raffles, Let’s Go Fishing fundraising walks, dinners with silent auctions, and the ads on the pontoon, we have been able to retire approximately $23,000 of the total $40,000 loan.

Donations are always welcome. They can be sent to: Headwaters Area Let’s Go Fishing, 619 West 6th Street, Park Rapids, MN 56470.

If you want to volunteer to help in any way or schedule a fishing trip or site seeing trip for next summer, please contact Jill at the Community Education office at 237-6600.
