As Let’s Go Fishing enters our 10th season in the North Branch area, we want to thank our devoted volunteers, sponsors, in-kind donors and clients for our successful season last summer. We are looking forward to another fun, heart-warming season in 2016.
The North Branch Chapter was established in 2005 by a group of dedicated volunteers. We have been taking seniors, veterans and disabled individuals out on our handicapped accessible pontoon for 10 years. Many of our guests are residents of nursing homes, assisted living residents, group homes and individuals from the North Branch, Cambridge, Forest Lake, Chisago City, Pine City areas and beyond.
Our pontoon is docked at Flickabirds resort on Rush Lake in Rush City, MN. Their generosity in allowing us to keep the pontoon at the resort makes it easy access for our guest and convenient for our volunteers.
Let’s Go Fishing is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 corporation with over 27 chapters in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Our program is completely funded through donations and business ads (placed on the side of the pontoon) and our annual Waffle Breakfast/Silent Auction fundraiser. All of the work is done by volunteers.
