We are happy to announce INTERNATIONAL VOYAGEURS SNOWMOBILE CLUB AND THUNDERBIRD LODGE'S 9th INTERNATIONAL SPEED RUN AGAINST CANCER generated a very generous donation for Falls Cancer Walk Fund. Total collected during speed runs was $1,232.00 and Thunderbird added $500.00 to that total! Thanks to all who supported in anyway!
SNOWMOBILERS HAVE WARM HEARTS Jim Bigler , President of International Voyageurs Snowmobile Club recently delivered a check to Karina McLellan of Falls Hunger Coalition in the amount of $830. Funds were collected during the club's annual complimentary hot dog roast. Snowmobilers attending this event each year insist on donating. So each year IVSC, in turn, matches those donations to support the local food shelf. Proof that "snowmobilers have big warm hearts!"
