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.
