Decorating the dam


Volunteers gather to help decorate the Crosslake dam Thursday, Dec. 12. The Crosslake-Ideal Lions provided a matching grant of up to $5,000 to put lights on the dam.

The effort was sparked by the Crosslake Economic Development Authority, which hopes the project can grow each year.
