Recently, Cambridge hosted the annual Isanti County fair.
Amidst the cheese curds and mini donuts was a stand of a slightly different nature. A place where donuts are transformed to a thing called donut chips and children and adults alike throw balls at a target to send local politicians, pirates, pastors and volunteers that like getting wet sailing into a man-sized tub of water.
That’s right, the Young Life stands, sponsored by A&W Automotive, were at it again and this year with the help of more than 100 volunteers, and managed to raise over $5,000 to help send 24 middle school and high school aged kids to camp. To an annual fair attendee the stands may have looked a little different this year, as preparation for the fair included a dunk tank makeover, painted by Jesse Gillespie. Young Life would like to extend a special thanks to the American Legion, all of our dunkees, set up and tear down crews, and everyone else involved in making this happen.If you would like to give any additional donations, contact the Young Life office.
