During this presentation Pam and Todd Strittmater, volunteers of North American Squirrel Association (nasa), will share with you a bit of the history of this great association and their mission and goals. They will talk about the different events people can participate in, the various fundraising efforts, community involvement, the Tomah branch, and how you can get involved through participating, sponsorship or becoming a volunteer. Come and see how this group helps to create memories and fun for those that enjoy the outdoors.
Pam and Todd Strittmater have two grown children and have all lived in La Crosse all their lives. Pam and Todd grew up in families that have always enjoyed the outdoors and doing activities such as boating, camping, fishing, and hunting. They were both active in scouts, learned the importance of volunteering and giving back to others and shared the values with their children.
Todd developed Cerebral Palsy during birth and has always had an interest in helping disabled people. In 2006, Todd found out about The North American Squirrel Association through a conversation with a former teacher, Tony Christnovich, the primary founder. Nasa was in its infancy stage and Todd thought it was a great group. Very soon after, Pam, Ben and Becky got involved by helping out during shooting clinics, pheasant and deer hunts, skiing, kayaking, the annual banquet, squirrel derby, golf scramble, and many more events. Todd has served on the Executive Committee and is currently the co-chair of the track chair committee. In 2017, he was named the Squirrel of the Year. Family time is important and doing things together is fun. As volunteers of nasa, they are able to spread cheer and help others to enjoy the outdoors and activities they have enjoyed throughout their lives.
