Hallberg Family Foundation
The Hallberg Family Foundation was started in 2000 to support our local community. We focus our attention on the Forest Lake and Wyoming areas, but occasionally we will lend a hand to surrounding areas.
In 2020 the Hallberg Family Foundation will provide $40,000 of scholarships to Forest Lake graduates through the Forest Lake Area Community Scholarship Foundation. Since its origin, the Hallberg Family Foundation has gifted over $250,000 in scholarships and well over $1,000,000 in donations to local organizations.
Notable organizations that the Foundation supports: Forest Lake Youth Performing Arts, Masquers Theatre, Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, Festival Theatre, Children’s Performing Arts, the Forest Lake School District, Lakes Center for Youth and Families, Family Pathways, Union Gospel Mission, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Rotary Club of Forest Lake, Wyoming Fire Relief Association, the Forest Lake and Wyoming Police Departments, as well as several churches and ministries in our area.
Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community
The Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community (WACAC) is an alliance of artists, musicians, performers, photographers and writers that came together to bring the arts to the communities surrounding Wyoming, MN, including Forest Lake, Stacy, North Branch, Chisago City and more.
In 2013 this collective of just over a dozen artists began to work towards becoming an established organization. With help from a generous contribution from the Hallberg Family Foundation, the organization purchased an old church in Wyoming, MN, and established the Hallberg Center for the Arts.
This arts community is committed to celebrating the diversity of the region surrounding Wyoming, MN by offering an array of affordable cultural opportunities and experiences designed to appeal and be accessible to all.
Hurricane Deck-boat Donated By Polaris
Hallberg Marine took delivery and prepped the Hurricane deck-boat for the St. Croix Watershed Research Station. The boat was donated by Polaris who now owns Hurricane Boats. The research station plans on using the boat for studying big lakes. It had to be safe, stable, and suitable for collecting water and sediment samples, deploying buoys, and more.
Dealer Council Updates
We are proud to have someone from our organization participating in some important decision making meetings with the manufacturers of the boats we sell. Denise Hallberg Tetrault participates on the Premier Pontoon Dealer council as well as the Honda Marine Dealer council.
