In the Community Time on the Water www.timeonthewatermn.com Time on the Water is a group of passionate individuals that are grateful for the freedom that has been provided by our service men and women. We work together to give back to veterans that have served our country. As a way of saying THANK YOU, Time on the Water started with Chris Hansen taking veterans on fishing excursions. Today, with a growing team of volunteers and donors, we continue to show our gratitude through multi-day trips to Canada as well as day trips in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Increasing exposure to our mission and generous donations of time and treasure, our reach will continue to expand by supporting veterans that have come into financial hardships. A thank you that's more than a handshake!
