June 6th, 2017

On June 6th, members of the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association (WBHA) presented the Chetek area Salvation Army with a $5000 check to help with tornado damage clean-up in the area.

“This is an area of the state that our members are very familiar with. We were extremely saddened to hear of the damage and loss of life caused by last month’s tornado in Barron County,” said WBHA Foundation President Stephanie Hanson.

The funds, raised through WBHA’s Foundation, were presented to the Salvation Army’s Duana Bremer at a small ceremony held at Prairie Lake Estates. “Thank you for the support from the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association,” stated Bremer. “These funds will go directly to help victims of the tornado who were residing in the trailer park. We thank you very very much.”

“We have heard nothing but the best regarding the Salvation Army’s response,” said WBHA Board Member Eric Tuckner. “We are proud to present them with this modest donation to help with efforts in this region.”

In attendance was Representative Romaine Quinn, adding, “Wisconsin Bear Hunters are not only dedicated outdoor enthusiasts, but are also a group of men and women who care deeply for their communities. We are extremely thankful for their generosity during this great time of need.”
