Let's Go Fishing conducting Grain Drive

SLAYTON —The Lake Shetek Chapter of Let’s Go Fishing will have its annual Grain Drive Fund Raiser this fall.

The Lake Shetek Chapter of LGF, which organized in 2009, has averaged more than 20 outings each summer, which means 250 to 300 area residents have enjoyed free fishing and boating excursions. The handicap-accessible pontoon travels to Fulda, Worthington and Balaton for outings in those communities. At Lake Shetek, residents from Marshall, Tracy, Tyler and Walnut Grove have all been able to enjoy time on the pontoon.

The grain drive is one of the fund raisers the chapter depends on to continue to be able to offer these free outings. Farmers may donate one or more bushels of their crop to the Lake Shetek Chapter of LGF by filling out a card with their name and donation amount at their elevator.

Those participating in the grain drive are CHS elevators in Marshall, Ruthton and Tracy ; Meadowland elevator in Walnut Grove; Schmitz elevators in Avoca, Currie, Dovray and Lake Wilson.

Cash donations are also accepted; checks can be mailed to: Lake Shetek Chapter/LGF 1554 U.S. 59, Slayton 56172.
