Thank you to all that came out to witness the Ceremonial Demolition of the Lakeside Motel. We had a great community turn out, a great mix of speakers, a delightful meal by America’s Family Diner, perfect weather, and a memorable show. At one point there were 17 kids lined up to be in the West Coast Training machinery during the demolition. Two recent articles are below along with their link. The first is from The Reflector, written by Rick Bannan, and the second is from The Columbian, written by Adam Littman. Their articles include details of the ongoing project, so be sure to read them both.
Stay tuned for information regarding the June 15 demolition. Want to take part in the demo? Contact email@example.com for details.
