Community Action of Pequot Lakes Update – January 2021
(PEQUOT LAKES, MN) — Community Action of Pequot Lakes is gearing up for a fresh start in 2021 after it saw many of its 2020 events canceled due to COVID. We spoke with board member Barb Merritt to hear about what’s in store for the coming months.
Merritt began by explaining what Community Action of Pequot Lakes is, and what they do, for anyone unaware.
Many of the events run by Community Action of Pequot Lakes got canceled due to their size; the workaround, Merritt says, has been to focus on retail stores that are still open by forming a new retail committee to brainstorm events that could still happen in the current environment.
Looking ahead, Merritt talked about the main focus for January 2021: their “Find the Bobber” event in Pequot Lakes, which is slated to get going the weekend of January 15.
Merritt then discussed the plans for the months of February and March.
We thank Barb Merritt for her time. The Community Action of Pequot Lakes Facebook page can be found here. Our full interview with Merritt, in which she also discusses how to become a member and some of the benefits that come with membership, can be found below.
