Volunteer with Brainerd Lakes Area Chapter of Let’s Go Fishing
John Carrol, Carol Whirley and Les Frazn representing Let’s Go Fishing at the Veteran Ribfest Cook-Off in Crosslake , July 8, 2017. The aroma of the 100’s of pounds of ribs being smoked and cooked all around us is totally mouthwatering!!!
Let’s Go Fishing Brainerd Lakes Area Chapter is all about volunteering. We currently have over 90 volunteers trained and ready to take seniors fishing or cruising on our lakes. And of course we have all-volunteer leadership to run the chapter.
If you have the knowledge to operate a pontoon, you can be part of a two-person team who can take seniors on outings. There will always be a minimum of 2 adult volunteers on each pontoon – one to captain the watercraft, the other to assist. You only need to be over 18 and be able to assist seniors on the pontoon.
We provide both organizational training and on-the-water training for our volunteers. All you need to do is sign up. We encourage husband-wife, father-son, mother-daughter, etc. teams to volunteer as well as individuals who just love the water and fishing. What better way to spend a day helping seniors who have given so much to us, and also being on the water fishing or cruising?
If you have the heart and desire to help the seniors and would rather not be on the water, you can help by volunteering at parades or other functions or fundraising events. You may have special talents that can benefit LGFWS.
If you are interested in volunteering to work with us, call us at (218) 537-0945 or (218) 454-FISH (3474)
