at the 2018 Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza Jan 27th
Article Image
With the cold temps it is definitely making ice, which is good news for the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza.
There is a way to help out LAHFH by volunteering to work the Brainerd Jaycees Fishing Extravaganza.  Here is how it works.
All proceeds raised from the contest are donated back to the area non-profit organizations. All we need to do is provide volunteers to help out at the fishing contest.  The more volunteers we have the more donation that comes back to LAHFH.  Consider working the event with your kids or grandkids.
Volunteer opportunities are; greeter/info person on warm bus, bucket checker, working in tent to check folks in and security.
Call Karen at 218-454-7020  or email her at volcoord@lakesareahabitat.org by Jan 11th if interested.  
We are short staffed with employees and volunteers in the ReStore. If you have some spare time, consider helping us out for a day or even a half day. 
Call me if interested in helping us out, Karen 218-454-7020

*******New computer system*******
We have converted to a new computer system! We want to make sure the old info transferred to the new system correctly and that we have current phone numbers, email and addresses on file. Some of our tenure volunteers no longer have a business phone # or have moved, so it's good to update once in awhile. Plus we need a new waiver form filled out each year and it is 2018.
If you could all fill out the volunteer form on our website, we would appreciate it!
Thank you!
