Big Thank You to Light Up the Dam Volunteers

Letter to the Editor

The Pine River Federal Dam looked SPECTACULAR this Holiday Season! A BIG THANK YOU to a great group of Light Up the Dam (LUTD) volunteers led by the Army Corp of Engineers, Tim and Beth Schalow and the Crosslake Chamber of Commerce. A special THANKS to Jeremy Knippel who has designed the large wreath that hangs off the dam, the hoops over the catwalk and the beautiful Christmas tree at the end of the tunnel.

Crosslake residents have seen the Holiday decorations get bigger and better over the past 6 years. It has come a long way from that first strand of lights on the dam and fishing pier. And KUDOS to the Crosslake Ideal Lions who started us out with a matching fund.

The next big event for the LUTD committee is their annual “Drive by Brats” sale held the Friday of opening fishing, May 8th at the Army Corp of Engineer Campsite. The monies raised from this event help pay for additional Christmas lighting and new decorations that make Crosslake a beautiful place to visit over the Holidays and our community to enjoy! So please support the efforts of this amazing team, buy a brat and say THANKS!

I can’t wait until next year to see another Holiday Spectacular at the Dam Site.
