Vermilion Sportsmen's Club annual meeting on August 6

Reservations needed by August 1


The 43rd Annual Meeting and Dinner of The Sportsmen’s Club of Lake Vermilion will be held on Saturday, Aug. 6 at Fortune Bay Resort in The Woodlands Ballroom.

The featured speaker will be Fitz Fitzgerald, Conservation Director of Minnesota Land Trust’s Northern Region based in Ely. The Land Trust has been working with landowners and local communities since 1991 to protect and enhance Minnesota’s increasingly threatened lands and waters through conservation easements, land acquisition and effective land management; by providing agencies, communities and organizations with planning assistance; and by fostering a culture of conservation. Mr. Fitzgerald’s presentation will focus on protecting lands using conservation easements.

Those attending will also be treated to a mini-concert by the Virginia-based men’s choral group “The Choralaires”. This 20-member group, under the direction of Myron Cook, has been presenting wonderful vocal performances across the Iron Range for nearly 25 years.

After dinner, the business meeting agenda will include reports from board members and officers, along with election of board members. The nominating committee will present a slate of board candidates at the annual meeting. Board nominations can also be made from the floor, with the nominee’s permission.

Also featured at the meeting will be the ever-popular door prize drawings, plus the opportunity for members and guests to talk about matters of personal concern regarding club business or problems around the lake.
