Silent Auction Donations:

We LOVE the silent auction! We anticipate your donations of books, art work, crafts, gently-used tackle, fly-tying materials & tools, jewelry . . . AND other items of interest! You may drop-off your donations at Mend Provisions in Minneapolis, Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop in St. Paul, or Lund’s Fly Shop in River Falls. We have already procured a number of trips, fine tackle, and gift items that should excite you.

Why We Need You:

Why does Kiap-TU-Wish do this? The function of the Holiday Conservation Banquet is to raise money for our conservation projects. Projects on the Kinnickinnic, Pine, and Trimbelle have added thousands of feet of rehabilitated streams in the last few years. YOUR participation in the banquet and silent auction contribute greatly to those efforts!

So register now, and plan on a lovely evening in Lake Elmo on December 8th!
