The 4th of July weather made way for fun family activities everywhere around the state. The annual Cordry Lake Boat Parade organized by local resident Natalie Beavers had a record number of participants.
I came to Cordry Sweetwater Lakes in 1952 as a youngster with my parents who bought a lot on what is now Lion Drive. We also had a cottage on East Lake in Prince's Lakes. I grew up playing on East Lake and later Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes. In 1988, I earned a real estate sales license and started selling lakes properties on a part time basis. In 2001, I purchased Sweetwater Realty from Carol Catt and brokered the business until 2008 when I sold my interest in the company. I have continued to promote sales on my own as an independent broker at Sweetwater Realty.
