Summer 2022 Report

Greetings District 3,
As I write this, spring beaver is in full swing, and the ice is finally departing after a long, cold winter. I hope you are able to get out there and get your waders wet.

We held our spring meeting on April 2nd in Sebeka and enjoyed a nice turnout of 44 people with 8 under 18. It was very good to chat with everyone and had some good discussions. We raised $653.00 between the raffle and the free-will donations. The raffle income goes to our education fund and the donations go to the District 3 budget. Thanks to all of you as well as Schmitt Enterprises, Minnesota Trapline Products, and Cumberland’s for the donations/making prizes affordable for our raffle. We couldn't do this without your generosity! Keith and Eric manned a booth for the MTA at The Gathering Wood Decoy Carving Show in Perham. They raise over $1000.00 for our Tanned Fur Project and sold more than 500 raffle tickets. We hope to see you all at the convention in Wadena in August. We will need help cleaning up on both Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Many hands make short work!

Remember to teach somebody something!
Don, Eric, and Keith
