Jan 26 Charitable Gambling Report
On January 5 our speaker was Sheri Wegner. She has been working with individuals that have a difficult time to find transportation in rural areas. Rural areas do not have taxis, buses, or ride share. Sheri has been working with Lift to get rural residents to become Lift drivers. Those needing a ride to a clinic, shopping, seeing grandchildren in a school play only need to call one of these driver. The drivers get paid thru Lift. You can google Connectability of MN to see is she can build such a ride network in your community. The State of MN has funds to help pay for these transportation needs
Our speaker on Dec 15 was Tom Wicks. He told us about the Avon Hills Folk School.
Tom said "WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID SOMETHING FOR THE FIRST TIME." This is a place to try new things. WE are giving you the Avon Hills Folk School website to read more about the place.
