Did you ever want to be involved in a fun party that raises money for a great cause?
How about protecting water?
Well then, you are invited to volunteer to be on the events committee for the F fundraiser to be held the evening of Thursday, April 11, 2012 at the Lafayette Club in Minnetonka Beach on Lake Minnetonka.
The events committee will start meeting in September at the Gray Freshwater Center in to help staff plan, coordinate and conduct a fundraiser that supports the Freshwater Society’s citizen outreach, education and research programs. Plans include silent and live auctions, educational booths and a loon calling contest.
Once again, Paul Huttner—MPR meteorologist and author of MPR’s Updraft Blog—will be the enthusiastic emcee. This year over 200 are expected to attend.
As the official “caller” of the "Ice Out" on Lake Minnetonka since 1968, the Freshwater Society will herald the spring return of Minnesota’s iconic state bird and couple it with an event that has been recorded since 1855. On Lake Minnetonka, the ice is designated as “out” when it is possible to travel by small boat from any one shore to another shore through any passage on the lake.
This year, the official Ice Out was called by the Freshwater Society on March 21 at 9:12 a.m.
Please call Diane Lynch, Senior Manager at the Freshwater Society, at 952-314-8134 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Freshwater Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and inspiring people to value, conserve and protect all water resources. Located in Excelsior, adjacent to Lake Minnetonka, it has a 44 year long history of protecting Minnesota’s water resources.
