Furharvesters’ Volunteer Weekend at Jewell State Fishing Lake
The Kansas Furharvester’s Association- District 3 group came out to Jewell State Fishing Lake this past weekend on June 11th
for their annual work day and campout. The group has been assisting the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) with maintenance and enhancement projects at the lake since 1996.
Early Saturday morning, District 3 members were ready to go to work for the day under the supervision of KDWP employees Toby Marlier and Curt Shoemaker. This year’s projects included: concrete construction of a retaining curb and sidewalk section at the group shelterhouse; marker posts were installed, painted, and capped next to all 9 fire rings; and 2 large signs were stained and repainted.
The Furharvesters’ work crew this year was Cleo, Miranda, and Marcus Hahn; Roger and Donna Macy; Jerry Koster; and Eldon Dunstan. At the end of the day a cookout was held at the group shelter that was enjoyed by friends and supporters of the group. After supper, a couple of the members took advantage of the fast paced bluegill fishing available that evening.
