Dear Gunflint Trail neighbors:

We would like to express our great appreciation to all of you who participated in the Gunflint Trail Summer 2021 fundraiser to benefit the vital services of the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department!

Some donations are still coming in but preliminary results from our successful indicate that over $64,000 was raised in contributions to the GTFD! This is impressive given the constraints of not being able to do our in-person events.
