Oct. 16 party marks end of ‘mega project’


There were years of discussion followed by years of construction, but now it is just about time to party.

Work on the $40 million Forest Lake Mega Project is slated to wrap up before the end of this month.

A celebration marking the project’s completion is set for 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the Forest Lake American Legion. It will take the form of a spaghetti dinner and silent auction to raise funds for the Legion’s 2013 Fourth of July Celebration. The optional meal is $7, or $5 for those age 10 and under. A series of speeches will begin at 6:30 p.m.
