Crosslake-Ideal Lions donate to Rotary music event
Rotary music festival is dedicated to ending human trafficking.
Jeremy Knippel, president of the Crosslake-Ideal Lions Club, along with club members recently met with Central Lakes Rotary Club members to present them with a check for $5,000 in support of the Rotary Club's upcoming project, Rotary Ends Human Trafficking.
This large event, scheduled for Aug. 12-14, 2022, at the Lakes Music and Events Park just north of Pine River, will include a weekend music concert featuring regional bands 32 Below, Remedy Drive, Kent Dudley and Bended Knee, Tim Eggebraaten and more. Speakers will give presentations, and there will be a food court, vendors and beer garden.
Central Lakes Rotary Club members who attended the check presentation were Mackenzie Sepin, Marsha Prescott, Diane Collins and Bruce Meade, who is also a member of the Crosslake-Ideal Lions Club.
"How very grateful we are to receive this generous gift in support of our event. It is amazing what can be done when service organizations work together, and we could not be more appreciative and thankful for the outstanding contribution made by the Crosslake-Ideal Lions Club," Collins said in a news release.
