2019 Island Repair Project

2019 Island Repair Project

Updated-  12-9-19 

Chuck Beeler Jr. set up a go fund me page to help fund this project. Amazingly, in addition to checks already mailed in and over $2,000 from Tip The Bartender night,  we received over $5,000 dollars in a few days. Below is an email showing Go Fund Me Page and explanation. 

Great job Chuck and to all the generous donors. Keep it coming folks.

Be sure to read up on the Island Repair Project under the Lake Projects header and all the effort that has already gone into it so far. Work will kick off this Sunday, November 24, 2019 to tie up the broken gabions and begin prep work for the large amount of backfill material needed to be transported as soon as we receive the permit. The Association has already received over $2,000 of the $10,000 dollars through its fund raising efforts and is accepting donations now. You can send a check to the DeRuyter Lake Association, PO Box 29, DeRuyter, NY 13052
