Boys throughout lakes area need need mentors


In a previous Waiting for a Mentor article, an urgent plea went out to recruit women and couples to mentor girls through the Kinship Lake Country Office, serving the Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus school districts.

Thankfully, five individuals came forward and hopefully will be matched soon with some of these girls. Although a waiting list remains, we are encouraged to see more folks making a commitment to our youth.
