Beaver Dam Lake Days ‘A Success’

(Beaver Dam) Organizers say the 25th annual Beaver Dam Lake Days was a success. The three-day event is typically held in early July and features a diverse lineup of musical acts and fun activities. Lake Days Committee member Tom Stebbins addressed the city council recently and credited the hard work from area non-profits in allowing the festival to give back to the community. He says the goal was to pay $10 an hour for every volunteer hour of labor worked. A total of 450 hours was worked by area non-profits and over $5,000 was paid out to the organizations that assisted in the event. Stebbins says Lake Days saw a $17,000 net profit in 2018. He adds that the goal is to also make significant contributions to park facility improvements in the coming years. Over 7,100 people came through the gates last summer and the $23,000 dollars raised by community donations exceeded $20,000 goal set by the Lake Days committee. Stebbins also thanked the police and fire departments for keeping the three-day festival safe. He says plans are already underway for 2019 that could include a beer and wine tasting, new water events and perhaps an even bigger fireworks display than last year.
