The Rice Area Sportmen’s Club held their annual fundraiser for PERM on April 16, 2004 at Henry’s Banquet Center in Foley, MN. This year’s event featured dozens of raffle and games as well as a silent and live auction.

PERM’s Annual Spring Pig Roast makes $6,000!

PERM’s annual Spring Pig Roast in Wahkon, Minnesota was on May 2, 2004 at the Wahkon Inn. We had great food, lots of raffles and fine silent and live auction items. In addition to the food and entertainment, this year’s event featured Minnesota DNR Commissioner, Gene Merriam and DNR Director of Fish & Wildlife, John Guenther. Both special guests gave presentations on the status of fisheries management at Mille Lacs Lake. PERM would like to thank Commissioner Merriam and Director Guenther for taking the time to share their thoughts and listen to our concerns on the issues. We also want to thank all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this event possible. We want to thank all the area businesses who provided merchandise for our raffles and auctions. We want to thank the Wahkon Inn for hosting the event. and we want to thank everyone who came to spend the afternoon supporting PERM!
