T.R.A.M. has been a spectacular partner of the Turn 2 Foundation for the past 10 years, and the entire Jeter family supports and appreciates its ongoing commitment to the young people of the Three Rivers area."

A little late as our Walleye Dinner/Silent Auction was March 2, 2019. It was a success!
We just wanted to say Thank You to all of our friends who supported us with donations for our Silent Auction and all who helped with the Walleye Dinner. All the proceeds will go to future growth and after school program.
