Help the CopperDog 150!

This year’s CopperDog 150 Dogsled Race will be held March 3rd, 4th and 5th. Last year, more than 500 volunteers helped make the race successful. Jobs range from dog handling, to monitoring road crossings, to setting up and tearing down the infrastructure. There’s something for everyone, and you’ll work with a great group of people! Take part individually, or with a group of friends or family. Volunteer training will take place on Sunday, February 26th from 1:00 to 3:00 at the CLK Schools Multi-Purpose room. See what jobs are available, and sign up at CopperDog150.com. Our Todd VanDyke will be volunteering as the voice of the CopperDog again this year. Make plans to take part!
