I apologize if I missed anyone, the committee is truly grateful for each, and every donation received. Please support these donors and thank them for supporting our organization. Because of the generosity of so many donations and generous people in attendance, we were able to raise $24,600 for the legal defense fund, this has surpassed last year, and the committee is extremely pleased. The Board will continue to put this money to good use protecting your trapping interests. A special thanks to Dave Schubert for Auctioneer services and Shannon Cohrs for MCing the event. Also, the many volunteers who helped run the games and raffle items, we really appreciated everyone who took the time to help and make it a great evening. I would also like to again thank all of the committee members Dewey Schmitz, Katelyn Jindra, Tony Willers, Eric Maijala, Deann Roggenkamp, Troy & Mary Hanson, Paul Jindra and Don & Jodi McGaffey. They all volunteer many hours and make the event a huge success. If you have suggestions or potential donors for next year's banquet, please feel free to contact any one of the committee members or me (218-821-1236). It would be greatly appreciated if we could receive donations from around the state. We will be accepting donations at the summer convention if you would like to bring them then.
