NEW CORDRY PATROL BOAT

A new pontoon-style patrol boat has been purchased and launched for Cordry Lake. The previous I-O runabout style patrol boat was suffering from old age, many hours, and major engine issues. The new boat has vinyl flooring which should last for years of service and a 4-stroke outboard which should be easier to service.

BASKETBALL COURTS READY FOR PLAY!

The new Basketball Courts near the fire station were "professionally" lined today. I have seen several groups playing on the courts recently as I drove by. There are a great addition to the park area.

COATS FOR KIDS

The Church of the Lakes and the Nineveh Christian Church along with some local residents are promoting a "Coats for Kids" project for Brown County elementary school-age children. The Sprunica Elementary Principal tells us that many youngsters did not have proper coats last winter. For $25 per child, a Martinsville business will provide proper sized coats. Contact Sam Alford @ 317-430-6778 for your donation.

PLAY BALL!

Finally! The basketball goals for the new basketball courts were installed today. They still need nets and the court itself is scheduled for line painting at a later date but......basketball can be played. Several advantages to this court include being more visible for security reasons, new flat surface, night lights nearby for late evening playing, etc. Thank you Conservancy Workers, Jerry Cleefman, Sweetwater Realty owner Aaron Parris for all of your contributions and volunteer work.

SAM EGGERS

Sam Eggers, one of the original lot owners and residents of Cordry Lake, passed on Thursday, July 30th at age 96. We're all familiar with seeing Sam digging in the dirt at "Sam Eggers Corner" just in the past few weeks. Sam was a retired pharmacist and had a passion for fishing, gardening, and love of the lakes area. Just last year he participated in one of the "Honor Flights" to Washington D.C. to see the WW11 monument. He was a decades long member of the ecology commission and frequent card player at the library.
