The Northern Lights Snowmobile Club (NLSC) of Three Lakes recently presented Three Lakes Trails, Inc. with a check for $10,000 as a thank you for another successful snowmobiling season.

NLSC, founded in 1967, holds fundraisers to provide financial support to the Three Lakes Trails, Inc. and its operation of maintenance of 186 miles of snowmobile trails each winter in Oneida and Forest counties.  

This was NLSC’s third donation to Three Lakes Trails this season bringing the total donations to $27,000. 

The money was raised from the generosity of many of the club’s 472 members providing donations attached with their yearly memberships. Funds also came in from the proceeds of the annual Groom to Ride raffle and from the proceeds of many other raffles supported by Three Lakes businesses.  

“We are blessed to have a snowmobiling community, local and afar, that appreciates the beautiful trail system we have here in Wisconsin’s North Woods and understands the investment required to maintain it,” said Reg Videgar, NLSC treasurer. “The work of Three Lakes Trails Inc. and all other area snowmobile clubs, combined with the support of our business community, create an atmosphere that snowmobilers want as their winter destination. NLSC is happy to help.”
