4th of July 2014

Wow!!! What a wonderful 4th of July weekend at Pretty Lake!! The weather was perfection, the festivities were fun and exciting, and the fireworks were spectacular. THANK YOU to all the volunteers and to all who participated in this year’s events. We appreciate your support of the annual fund raisers and thank you for buying the Nelson’s Chicken and the flares, and for joining us for bingo & root beer floats. Special thanks to those of you who made donations to support the amazing fireworks display. In addition, this year we had sponsors who donated all the prizes for the Kid’s Fisherama. Everyone came away with something!! The sponsors who deserve recognition are: Meijer, the Kantorak Family, Wal-Mart, Schlemmer Hardware in LaGrange, Ace Hardware in LaGrange, L&K Outdoor Sports in Shipshewana, FLW Outdoors, PLCC, and The Angler.   unnamed
