Community: Come join us

To the Editor:

The Chain of Lakes Yacht Club, formed in 1958, is one of southern Minnesota’s best family recreation facilities, provides many hours of family fun throughout the year and is a great asset to our community.

On behalf of the Fairmont Yacht Club, we would like to invite everyone to join us for the 15th annual Beach Bash FUNdraiser event on Saturday on the south end of Hall Lake. This is a great opportunity for those who may have always been interested in what the Yacht Club has to offer.

Come use the entire facility from 2-8:30 p.m. The ticket price includes not only a meal prepared by Hy-Vee of Fairmont, but the ability to partake in the jumpy castle, inflatable slide, face painting, sand castle contest, photo booth, pool games, heated “kiddy” pool, heated pool, sand beach, boat ramp and beautiful Hall Lake.

Our clubhouse facility is handicap-accessible, with large windows facing the lake for ease in viewing everything taking place on the grounds. The AC will be on should you need a break from the heat.

So, bring your family, bring your friends and come enjoy this fun event on the south end of Hall Lake.
