As the dredging comes to an end, the removal of the roadway is underway. I stopped by to watch the worker remove a Bobcat from the lower level up to the top of the road. It took several attempts and adjustments before it was accomplished. The excess rip rap is being used to line the shoreline of the areas that were dredged. Some of the rip rap us being used to construct a "contractors boat ramp" at the Sweetwater boat ramp/dock area.

Larry, Frank, and Quinn have been at it again! The latest addition to the Firehouse Park is a new industrial grade swing. Thanks to the fellows and South Central REMC for erecting the swing. (REMC dug the hole with a power auger) Now we would like to see the basketball courts moved to this area of the park but it will take some hefty donations. There is a need for more volunteers for small projects such as this. (Planting some plants, hanging Christmas lights at the club house, etc.)

The dredging continues at the north end of Sweetwater. The dredging company reported that they are approximately 75% complete. The CSCD Board approved private freeholders to "piggy-back" at their own expense to have additional dredging done while the company still has their equipment in the lake. Contact Mr. Lee or Mr. Haywood at the Conservancy office.
The 2012 Cordry Sweetwater Ox Roast is history. The weatherman missed it! He predictied doom and gloom and floods and prepare your sandbags and it didn't happen. It was hot and humid and a couple of showers. It didn't dampen the spirits of the workers and those who attended and enjoyed the show by Snake Man, Bird Man, and perfromances by the Brown County Community Band. Let's hope the end tally produces lots of money for the CSLOA and the Fire Department. If you missed, you can send your $75 annual membership dues in anytime to the Conservancy Office.
