Due to an overwhelmingly response, we have been forced to find a larger location for the initial "SAVE THE LAKE" meeting. The new date and time will be:
Wednesday, June 9, 2004 from 7-9pm at the
Monroe Government Center in the Community Room located in the lower level. The address is 233 South Main Street in Monroe. Free parking is available behind the Government Center. The entrance will be behind the building just to the left of the Monroe Police Department entrance.
I apologize for changing the date and time but there has been a ground swell of support to get LeSourdsville Lake back in business!!!!!!
Thank you for your support!

MUCH better than meeting at a McDonalds! Good to see the meeting has been moved, and glad to see the reason why.
Good luck guys...we're counting on you!

All we can do is try. We may end up like the Save the Tilly or we could actually succeed.
Either way, We just cant let a park that is in good shape, afordable and can work with the right management just dissapear without trying.

Right now we have 22 and I know of as many more people who want to help or plan to attend, I did see a few names from people far away that probably can't attend the meeting but all help in raising awareness is welcome

I'm wishing you luck! I rode the Eagle 6 times in two hours in June 2002, and I REALLY want to ride it again!

so I guess the plans to have that park opened by this weekend fell through ? :(

You will always have my support, Chuck. I fell in love with the park the first and only time I was there and will do anything I can to pitch in and raise awareness.
It's an awesome little park and the Eagle is one of my favorite woodies of all time.
I can't physically attend this meeting but you have my support!

You got that right! I can't be there in person, but what I will do from where I stand (physically) should more than make up for it.
I think that this effort is truly admirable. The support that exists will definitely make an impact, even if its in an indirect way. Bringing awareness to an issue such as this is the first step in starting a movement, and it gives me great pleasure to hear that so many people are willing to dedicate themselves to such a cause.
All of you that wondered what could be done by individuals when it comes to a preservation effort, sit up and take notice. Here are people that refuse to sit back and let a GOOD piece of history fade into the past without a fight.
