News: DSA Leadership Supports Lake Appreciation Day

Lake Appreciation Day-06-18DSA staffed a booth on Saturday, June 18, from 11 AM to 2 PM, at the 2016 Cherry Creek Lake Appreciation Day.  Our thanks to Glenn Hackemer who brought a shade tent and a table, and who, along with David Thompson, set up the booth and staffed it for the first shift.

And our thanks to Richard and Leslie Allen, who set up Richard’s Corsair Pulse 600 at the entrance to the exhibit, and stood by it to steer interested visitors down to the DSA booth. And thanks to Tex Poor, who staffed the DSA booth for the second shift and helped break down the booth and pack it up after the event ended.

It was a beautiful sunny day with a gentle southerly breeze blowing directly into the exhibit area on the grass just below the large curved cement building southeast of the Lake House.  The breezes kept us comfortable as we chatted with booth visitors and gave them informational handouts about DSA.  The event was sponsored by Cherry Creek State Park and the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, who provided lunch for the booth workers, and entertainment by a folk singer.
It was a most enjoyable event for visitors and booth workers.
