Let’s hear a great big round of applause for the first year’s progress in the “Save the Thorofare” project. The Priest Lake Community has responded wonderfully with personal donations and pledges from $10 to $5000 dollars.
The numbers of lives that have been enchanted by the Thorofare and Upper Lake is nothing short of fantastic. Our total fund has just passed the $20,000 point and we are making a great showing to agencies of how we feel about not losing access to the Upper Lake. Bonner County officials as well as Idaho State officials and an amazing array of departments and bureaus that are aware of the problems that need to be faced. This summer, Saturday, July 9th will be the date of the annual Priest Lake Invitational Golf Tournament. The tournament is going to direct its annual charitable donation this year to the Save the Thorofare project. If you are a golfer this would be a great time to find your partner and get into the fun. It is a great event with all kinds of very nice prizes for both men and women flights.
