The Canoes for a Cause Fundraiser for the Chetek Lakes Protection Skimmer has been an annual event for all ages the past 4 years. We understand not everyone is comfortable with these gatherings during the Covid-19 virus season right now, so we expect attendance for this event will be down from past years. The concern is that this year’s Canoes for a Cause may not cover the event expenses for this fundraiser if the turnout is low, so this is why we have cancelled the 2020 Canoes for a Cause. Rather than risk losing money putting on this year’s event, we are asking everyone to consider a free-will Skimmer donation through our GoFundMe site. The CLPA is not planning to reduce our Skimmer services or lake projects this year, even though our expenses remain the same. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the CLPA this year!
