Pat "Pops" Modos and his wife, Pam (right center), of the Kalkaska Chapter of Whitetails Unlimited recently presented a check to the Public Servants for Outdoor Safety and the Kalkaska County Sheriff Department, including Sgt. Dave Wagner, Deputy Regan Foerster and Sheriff Patrick Whiteford, for more than $1,300. The funds will be used to provide classroom materials, and possibly purchase a storage trailer, for the group's hunter safety program.

KALKASKA – A local effort to provide free hunter safety programs again got a helping hand from the organizers of the Kalkaska County chapter of Whitetails Unlimited annual banquet.

Pat “Pops” Modos and his wife, Pam, who organize the banquet, recently presented members of the Public Servants for Outdoor Safety, who provide hunter safety courses each fall in conjunction with the Kalkaska County Sheriff’s Department (KCSD) and Michigan Department of Natural Resources, with a check for more than $1,300.

“It was about same amount as we gave them last year,” Pat Modos said.

According to Modos, the local chapter is provided with a percentage of the funds raised at the banquet. Those funds are then passed on to local hunting or conservation groups.
