Although the Lions Lake Initiative is not currently meeting, it should be recorded for posterity’s sake that LLI accomplished its mission to dredge Lions Lake. Thanks to many fundraisers and generous contributions from the Warrensburg community, LLI raised $28,000 towards the dredging project. The city of Warrensburg provided the remainder of the funds, and dredging was completed in 2011. Lions Lake now enjoys significantly higher water quality–the lake is deeper and the algae blooms are gone!
The Warrensburg City Council honored LLI with a proclamation on July 9th, 2012. Many thanks to everyone who planned events, volunteered, spread the word, and donated to the cause!
