The water was a little rough all day but that didn’t stop this team from making our lake more beautiful than it was. The men worked the boat and did the diving and the fragments were caught by the women in kayaks. Six hours later and we had accomplished so much! A big thank you to all who volunteered their time and effort to a most valuable cause!
