Melvin Jones Award Presented Riverside Inn
Last month Bonnie and Bob Mudek, owners of Riverside Inn, were presented the Melvin Jones Award for their support and contributions to the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club. They became owners in 1978 and continue as active owners in the restaurant along with their sons, Shane and Judd. They are charter members of the Crosslake Ideal Lions. The public has continued to support their efforts particularly for their Family Style Chicken/Buckets of Chicken to Go, which is their trademark.
They host many community events although this year it has been limited due to Covid 19. Normal events include a pool league, Bocce Ball Tournaments, and buffets on special holidays. They are available to serve the community 364 days per year, with Christmas being the only day they close.
34th Annual Crosslake Days Fall Festival
Crosslake Days 2020 had a little different vibe compared to previous years.This year’s event, without a chili cookoff due to the COVID-19 pandemic, provided a slower, more relaxed pace against a stunning peak fall colors.
Thousands of people visited Crosslake from end to end, enjoying the some new events including a well attended cornhole beanbag tournament at Ace Hardware, a weather delayed pickleball Tournament at the Crosslake Community Center, three shows by the highly entertaining Unicycling Unicorn, Crosslake Ideal Lions Flea Market, and Mid Town Crafters Fair, sales events and entertainment provided by retailers and establishments all day.
Other events included the Crosslake City Candidate’s Forum on Thursday, and tours of the new City Hall and Police Department facility.
