Lake Loretta draining residents

July 26, 2007

Albany - The upkeep of Lake Loretta on Dawson Road in Albany is a drain on people who live there.

The popular recreational spot is often used by people who don't live in the area, and don't contribute to the upkeep which costs thousands of dollars each year. Residents are asked to participate in the Recreation club and contribute money, but don't always join up.

In order to allow folks to continue to use the lake without charging them or blocking them access, a huge yard sale is being organized to raise money.

Sam Shugart said, "We have run into some financial trouble where we're having to raise money to pay for a new pump and for the well and so forth."

The yard sale is planned for this Saturday beginning at 7 AM at Covenant Presbyterian Church. Of course, you can also donate money to the recreation club. To find out more, call 407-0972.
