The Turtle Lake Lions Club and the Turtle Lake SOS (Students Offering Support) organization have begun their annual Christmas Drive recently. The groups are seeking monetary donations, which are then used to purchase clothing, food and toys for these families; making Christmas a less stressful time. A huge advance “Thank You” to all the individuals and businesses who donate to this year’s drive. Those contributing this week include Synergy Co-op, Monarch Paving Company, Turtle Lake Collision Center, Gary & Dorie Solum, Carol Weber, David Bounk, Monforton Lake County Pizza and Turtle Lake Clinic/Amery Hospital & Clinic. Donations are still being accepted. If you would like to donate, please send your check to School District of Turtle Lake, Attn. Jean Pabst, 205 Oak Street North, Turtle Lake, WI 54889.
