With more than 170 people in attendance, this year's Spring Fling proved to be very successful for the Perham Rotary Club.

"I am always amazed at the spirit of giving that is demonstrated at the Rotary Spring Fling. It's a great night that benefits many worthwhile causes, and those who attend certainly do not disappoint in their generosity", said John Anderson, one of the event coordinators.

With items to bid on that included custom-made pub tables, trips, Twins tickets and much more, along with a fabulous array of food catered by Dean's Country Market, the "Guns and Roses" themed night turned out to be a recipe for success. More than $42,000 was raised that will be used for future community projects.

"Perham Rotary would like to thank the individuals and businesses that donated items for our event.," said Tim Graff, another of the event organizers. "The Spring Fling is our most important fundraiser of the year and it allows our club to fund future projects in our community".

A few of the projects funded by Perham Rotary in the past include the tennis and pickle ball courts in Perham, entry signs to Perham, area scholarships, the new dog park in Perham, the shelter at Boedigheimer Park, and playground equipment.
