The Erie Beach Hotel this past March 6 held its yearly Benefit Buffet. With this “Benefit Buffet” the Erie Beach shares proceeds of the day with participating community organizations.

 The Friends of Silver Lake wish to give a whole-hearted “Thanks” to both the Erie Beach for this fine gesture of giving back to the Community; and also to those Friends of Silver Lake who attended and enjoyed a buffet of the Erie Beach’s finest. We had even more Friends enjoying the Buffet this year than last. We appreciate the support of our Friends of Silver Lake during the time the matter of repairing Misner Dam and restoring Silver Lake has been dragging out.

That being said, all Friends of Silver Lake, stay alert for word that the Consultant’s options report for Misner Dam is finally to be tabled for Council’s guidance. (It did have a February due-date.) We can be encouraged by statements that MNR is ready to assist Council with short-term options.

 Once again, Thanks to All!

To all members of the Port Dover Waterfront Preservation Association and Friends of Silver Lake.

The Erie Beach Hotel each year gives back to its Community by holding a Benefit Buffet.

 By courtesy of The Erie Beach Hotel’s community-mindedness, The Friends of Silver Lake,  Paris-Port Dover Pipe Band, and the Lakeshore School are hosting an Erie Beach Charity Buffet, featuring Lake Erie Perch in the Terrace Room on Thursday, March 6, 2014. We, the Friends of Silver Lake, have 100 tickets for five seating times: 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, and 7:00 pm. Tickets are $25 per person (tax included). A portion ($12.00) of the proceeds go toward the cause of Silver Lake.

As you know, we continue to face delay and uncertainty in getting our Lake restored. We must face that prospect with a firm determination to hang in there and succeed! Let’s sell those 100 tickets! Make up a party of six or eight friends, request your tickets, and enjoy a good feast of perch while helping the cause of restoring our Lake.
