These buildings are relics that require much upkeep and maintenance to preserve them for future generations. The donations from the Lions will be used specifically to repair the roof of the General Store that is pictured in the background of the photo. The Crosslake Area Historical Society appreciates this generous gift.

At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
