It’s Official!

It was a small but very happy group that gathered to formally dedicate the new LeRoy canoe & kayak launch. The weather couldn’t have been better!

Shelley Stein gave a heartfelt thanks to all the participating departments & noted that this project was a great example of what can be accomplished with shared services.  George concurred and credited all the involved departments  with working together very effectively so the project went quickly and smoothly, despite the weather not always cooperating.

A big thanks to everyone involved that worked to provide this great new public access to the Oatka!
