To the Editor,

There has been a lot of publicity regarding the mentoring program that we hope to get started throughout Fillmore County. Sometimes the word “mentor” is a little scary - especially to men. To help put it in perspective, let’s ask ...
“What does a young boy need from an adult mentor?”
• Someone to play catch.
• Someone to make a snowman with him.
• Someone to teach him how to play checkers.
• Someone to take him fishing.
• Someone to take him to a high school basketball game.
• Someone to help him fly a kite.
• Someone to help him build something.
• Someone who will take him to a farm.
• Someone who will teach him how to skip rocks.
• Someone who will look at his baseball card collection.
• Someone who will say, “good job”.

Are you a male, 21 or older? Can you do any of the above? Then please consider being a mentor. There’s a young boy who just might need you. Please call, and find out more about being a mentor.

If you live in the Fillmore Central school district, call Phyllis Hendrickson, 937-3455; Chatfield school district, call Laurie Bakken, 867-3726; Kingsland, Lanesboro, Mabel-Canton or Rushford-Peterson districts, call LuAnn Klevan, 346-2258.

Thank you for giving it some thought.
