Light Up the Dam Day Offers Free Booya Lunch
The Light Up the Dam Project is comprised of volunteers whose mission is to highlight Crosslake’s natural assets by creating unique experiences for residents and visitors. Specifically, the Light Up the Dam organization strings thousands of lights along and around the Pine River Dam each Christmas season.
Each year the number of lights strung has grown to the point where the group needs more volunteer help to decorate a larger area of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Campgrounds this year than ever before. To accomplish this goal, the group is holding a Light Up the Dam Day Saturday, September 22 beginning at 11 a.m. at the campgrounds. Volunteers are encouraged to join Light Up the Dam members to help string lights on and around the dam area that day. Those helping will be treated to a booya lunch at 1 p.m.
