Become one of Dorothy's Angels

From the early days of snowmobiling, snowmobilers played a big part in Dorothy Molter’s life. They became known as Dorothy’s Angels for hauling Dorothy’s supplies to her islands after the float planes were banned. Dorothy would give long lists of supplies and food she needed to area snowmobile clubs in Ely, Winton, Two Harbors, Virginia, and Grand Marais and they would all go up on a designated day each February. Many would stay the day and chop Dorothy’s wood and cut her ice for the coming season.

All through the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, as long as snowmobiles were allowed in the Boundary Waters, Dorothy’s Angels brought Dorothy’s supplies to her islands.

Realizing that many snowmobile clubs are involved in charitable gambling, the Dorothy’s Angels Fund would be a great way for a new generation of Dorothy’s Angels to help the museum to keep Dorothy’s story alive. With snowmobile clubs as the museum’s benefactors, it can be assured of having ice cold root beer for the many visitors who come to the museum to hear about Dorothy and the Boundary Waters.

May 6, 2007 will mark the 100th birthday of Dorothy Molter, and the foundation would also like to do something extra special.

When Dorothy was alive, a distinctive fence of canoe paddles lined the pathways on her Isle of Pines. What started out as a way to use broken paddles for pickets on Dorothy’s fences soon became a display of all the visitors to the Isle of Pines.

The foundation would like to include canoe paddles to commemorate all the snowmobile clubs – Dorothy’s Angels – that helped Dorothy over the years, and to include snowmobile clubs, past and present, from all across Minnesota.

Everyone who supports the Dorothy’s Angels Fund will receive a certificate of recognition. Individuals making a donation of $100 or more will receive a KWITCHURBELIAKIN T-Shirt. Snowmobile clubs or other organizations donating $250 or more will have a paddle placed on the fence at the Museum.

    • The Best Winter Fishing Destinations for Anglers Winter can be a great time for fishing, with fewer crowds and opportunities to catch a variety of cold-water fish species. However, choosing the right winter fishing destination can be challenging, as some areas are better suited for winter fishing than others. In this essay, we will explore some of the best winter fishing destinations for anglers, from frozen lakes to rivers and streams. Ice Fishing in Minnesota Minnesota is known for its world-class ice fishing, with thousands of frozen lakes and miles of rivers and streams to explore. Anglers can catch a variety of fish species, including walleye, northern pike, and panfish. Popular ice fishing destinations in Minnesota include Lake of the Woods, Mille Lacs Lake, and Upper Red Lake. Steelhead Fishing in the Great Lakes The Great Lakes region offers excellent winter steelhead fishing, with opportunities to catch these hard-fighting fish in the rivers and streams that feed into the lakes. Some of the best steelhead fishing destinations in the Great Lakes include the Niagara River in New York, the Pere Marquette River in Michigan, and the Salmon River in New York. Trout Fishing in Pennsylvania Pennsylvania is home to some of the best winter trout fishing in the country, with over 4,000 miles of stocked and wild trout streams to explore. The state's limestone streams offer excellent fishing opportunities for brown and rainbow trout, while the Lehigh River is known for its trophy-sized trout. Popular winter trout fishing destinations in Pennsylvania include Spring Creek, Penns Creek, and the Youghiogheny River. Salmon Fishing in Alaska Alaska is known for its incredible fishing opportunities, and winter is no exception. Winter salmon fishing in Alaska can be an unforgettable experience, with opportunities to catch king, coho, and chum salmon in the state's rivers and streams. Some of the best winter salmon fishing destinations in Alaska include the Kenai River, the Kasilof River, and the Situk River. Redfish Fishing in Louisiana Louisiana is a popular winter fishing destination for anglers looking to catch redfish. These hard-fighting fish can be found in the state's marshes, bayous, and estuaries, with the best fishing usually occurring in the winter months. Some of the top winter redfish fishing destinations in Louisiana include the Delacroix area, the Venice area, and the Lafitte area.
