Let's Go Fishing Northwoods announces Grandparents Day event

Let's Go Fishing Northwoods has announced it will host a Walk for Grandparents Sept. 7 at Hodag Park. The Walk for grandparents will be held in conjunction with Grandparents Day and will honor the many seniors and grandparents in the Northwoods. Walking will begin at noon with lunch to follow at 2 p.m.

Let's Go Fishing is dedicated to getting seniors, veterans and the disabled out on the LGF pontoon boat enjoying the great outdoors. In 2012, the organization had a total of 17,671 guests and 2,155 volunteers that contributed 24,496 hours to this cause. Currently, LGF has 30 active chapters and continues to grow.

"I am very excited to help out with the first annual Walk for Let's Go Fishing!" said LGF Chapter President Chrissy Peterson. "Not only do we raise money for a great local organization, we also get to spend time with our loved ones celebrating our parents and grandparents by getting out on the water and also walking along the beautiful shore of Boom Lake."

Walking teams can sign up by calling Stephanie Schroeder at the Oneida County Senior Center at (715) 219-5436. More information can be found at
