The Cordry Sweetwater Fire Department will present their annual Haunted Forest and Hayride fundraiser on October 26th and 27th from 8:00 PM to Midnight. Admission for the event is $8.00 for
adults and $4.00 for children 3-11 years. The brave participants will board a hay wagon at the Sweetwater Beach and be taken back to the haunted trail. The poor souls will then walk the haunted trail and encounter various skits put on by volunteers. Afterward, they will reboard a hay wagon and return to the beach. Food is available before and after the ride.
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.
