How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful town; with outstanding mountain views, trails, rivers and a beautiful lake for all of us to enjoy!
How horrible it would be down at that beautiful lake if one of those little toddlers fell off the dock into the water as a boat was loading or unloading from the water.
The dock has become the spot for kids to hang out and jump off and is becoming increasingly dangerous with the large volume of boating traffic and kids!
I counted 15 little kids on the dock one evening with only three in life jackets!
A solution to this problem is a swim dock in the swimming area for the kids and I personally will work on raising the awareness to the district and raising the funds to make it happen.
Lets have a safe summer everyone with some good parent supervision and some better boat edict at the boat launch and on the lake.
We all can enjoy the beauty of Hope!
