While many businesses suffered through four years without water in the Lake, they also showed a brave face. Holding the business together with savings, creative pricing and prayers…there are many that lasted through the hard times. Buckeye Lake was considered a Federally Distressed Lake…. not just a State Declaration, but Federal. The magnitude of that is worth considering.
Consider how many businesses completely closed and how many relied on summer business to keep them solvent all year long. How many relied on the docks to promote business and those docks not only collapsed with no water in the lake for four years, the sea walls that have been standing for decades collapsed. Physics is not rocket science, but ODNR had to know the ripple effect of their actions.
After we have endured the long journey together, we feel that our “Go Fund Me” account should not only help Buckeye Beach Park, which suffered, yet all businesses on the lake that suffered due to dock loss, dock rebuilds, dock repairs and business loss due to not having docks.
We will post all the recipients and the distributions on our blog. Businesses interested in being part of the pool, should send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the “Subject” stating For Buckeye Lake’s Sakes.
We will begin a ledger of funds received and an even split between all participating pool members. We will update on a weekly basis and hopefully some of the business owners which provide Travel & Tourism via docks on our Special Buckeye Lake will survive this challenge.
We appreciate your consideration and loyal patronage at the Best Little Lake in Ohio, Buckeye Lake.
