Free and open to the public …
Langley – It is almost time for the Grand River Dam Authority’s Third Annual “Lake Launch” and you are invited!
The 2014 GRDA Lake Launch event will be an opportunity to say “Aloha, Summer” when it takes place on Friday, May 2, from 6 to 8 PM, at the GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center in Langley. A free event, and open to the public, it will include food, music and displays from lake area vendors. Meanwhile, GRDA’s police boats and helicopter will also be on display in the parking lot immediately adjacent to the dam (old lake patrol parking lot).
It will also be an opportunity for the public to meet with the GRDA Lake Operations Team and get answers to any questions you might have in regards to lake permits, rules & regulations, Pensacola Dam tours, facility use and rentals, dock billing, shoreline cleanup and GRDA’s ecosystems management efforts. Also, there will be plenty of door prizes (but you must be present to win).
Come visit the reception and information booths from 6 PM to 7:10 PM. After that, stay to hear from GRDA during the “state of the lake” address by GRDA Chief Executive Officer/Director of Investments Dan Sullivan. He will update the public on the issues affecting Grand and Hudson lakes, including information on GRDA’s ongoing programs, goals and plans for Summer 2014.
Remember, the fun starts at 6 PM. The GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center is located at 420 Hwy 28 Langley, Oklahoma, just west of Pensacola Dam.
