6th Annual Community Food Shelf Golf Scramble Raises $19,210

Despite the very rainy weather on Sunday, August 17th, the 6th Annual Community Food Shelf Golf Scramble went on as planned. Approximately 80 golfers swung away for a chance to win a Buick by getting a hole in one while raising funds for the local food shelf.

The success of this event is due to the golfers, volunteers, local businesses, and hole sponsors.

Funds were also raised from the silent auction, raffles, and donations including one from ACCRA.

Lake Roosevelt Project Underway

During the week of August 25, a thousand property owners on or near Lake Roosevelt will receive a mailing explaining the Woods Bay Project and inviting their contributions to help the project come to fruition.

The Woods Bay Project is an effort to preserve over 105 acres and a mile of undeveloped shoreline in the Woods Bay area of Lake Roosevelt and to keep it in its undeveloped state for future generations. The plan is a partnership between the Leech Lake Area Watershed Foundation (LLAWF) and the Roosevelt and Lawrence Area Lakes Association (RALALA), in which LLAWF will actually purchase the property from the estate of the late Charles and Judy Eggers, who purchased the property in the early 1950s. LLAWF will then donate the property to the MN Dept. of Natural Resources, to become a DNR Aquatic Management Area. It will then become available for public use for future generations.

In order to make this purchase happen, the State of Minnesota, through the Lessard-Sams Legacy Fund, has appropriated some $1.2 million, but local support is also needed to complete the transaction. That's where RALALA, representing four of the Outing/Emily area's lakeshore property owners, comes in. The RALALA Board has designated up to $15,000 and the organization is seeking another $10,000 or more from area owners, according to Donald Dee, local coordinator for the LLAWF/RALALA project.
