PESHTIGO — The Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce has officially launched their fundraising effort for Wild Goose River Kayak Group (WGRKG) project. There is a progress sign at River Park in Peshtigo. The Chamber is seeking to raise $35,000 to be used to procure and place an ADA compliant kayak/canoe launch and fishing pier on the Peshtigo River within the water boundaries of the City of Peshtigo.

As part of our fundraising efforts, a raffle for a 12-foot Teton Angler Kayak, donated by Anderson’s Culligan of Peshtigo. Tickets are available for $20 each from any board member or member of WGRKG. The drawing will be held at 3:30 p.m., Sept. 26 at River Park. People do not need to be present to win. There will also be booyah that day, available to pre-order by the gallon for $25 or purchase by the bowl that day.

People may also support the cause with donations. People can directly deposit in the Wild Goose River Kayak Group account at Peshtigo National Bank or give to a board member. People may contact the group with Facebook, by text to 715-938-7912 or send an email to with any questions.
