Thank you to those who participated in the Carlyle Lake 50th Anniversary Planning Meeting held at the Carlyle Lake Visitor Center on April 21, 2016. For those who could not make last week’s meeting, the meeting minutes are attached.
The next meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 5th at the Carlyle Lake Visitor Center. We hope to continue to keep building momentum, begin to establish a planning committee, narrow the dates for the weekend activities to be held in the Dam West Area and move forward to the planning phase. Please share with anybody you know who may be interested in participating in planning any activities to promote the area and commemorate the 50 year Anniversary of Carlyle Lake.
We hope to see you on May 5th!
