“We are so grateful to Jake Yakey and Antigo Yamaha for nominating us this summer for this opportunity. It’s like winning a lottery! We never thought we would be selected but are so excited that we won! Our first mission will be the Montana Mule Deer Hunt and Wisconsin Deer Camp in November this year “, said Vickie Reetz.
Thank you to everyone who supports us! We couldn’t do what we do without the donations and volunteers that help us out. We are a small 100% volunteer program that survives on raffles and donations. Companies like Can Am, County Materials, Antigo Yamaha, and Fox Cities Towing have made a significant impact to our service delivery this year.
