Thanks for success of Let's Go Fishing

The Detroit Lakes Area Chapter of Let's Go Fishing thanks the 12 team captains and their team members for raising over $8,500 in pledges for Let's Go Fishing in support of this program which takes seniors, veterans, and youth on fishing and scenic excursions. This past summer 61 such trips provided on the water experiences for over 550 seniors, veterans, and youth.
