The Lake Avenue Loafers is a club of laid-back gentlemen who are raising money to send a Hermantown student to college.

The club started after World War II as a neighborhood group. Hermantown Principal Ray Wero was a founding member, and now club dues help fund a $1,500 scholarship every year for a Hermantown student.

The Loafers' director, Lee Fawcett, says the friendly club has grown to over 400 members helping to keep the scholarship going.

“Great bunch of guys. We get new ones. I think today we signed up half a dozen of them. We're glad to get them because we got to keep this rolling. A lot of money goes into that scholarship fund there,” Fawcett says.

He says the club started as a group of neighbors living on Lake Avenue, but now anyone can join to help out the cause. Members meet for a brunch meeting on Saturday to pay dues and catch up.
