WKND#034 WITH JAMIE AND DAVE ABOUT WAKE THE WORLD

August 21, 2019

LAKE LIFE WKND 034 with Jamie and Dave Swenson from Big Cormorant Lake about sharing lake life with children and taking out kids on a boat surfing. Wake the World is a nation wide organization started by Greg Hodgin from North Carolina in 2008 to give back to the community by spending a day on the water with kids from children homes. An experience many children may otherwise never have. Many boat owners in more than 25 states liked Greg's idea and get together every year to organize a day for the children with lots of fun, laughter, and lake life to remember. Hear the story from Jamie and Dave how they connected to Greg and started a chapter for Wake the world for Minnesota and North Dakota children right in our backyard. Learn how you may be able to participate and help out with their event.
