Millet Lions Campground

Pipestone Flyer

Submitted by Brenda Jackson

For the past several weeks, crews have been constructing the new road leading into the Lions Memorial Campground. Recently completed, the club members have been in the preliminary planning stages with their first priority to secure the parameter of the eighteen or so acres.

The club held a work bee on Saturday, August 9th to begin clearing the way for fencing to take place. We are trying to keep as much natural vegetation as possible, for both wind and sound barriers. We are confident that the majority of the trees and brush will remain. As Saturday confirmed, we would only have a section of trees to clear on the south end of the property. Even at that, we were able to go through the middle with just a ten foot swath. Once we have completed our initial work, we will proceed to fence, and from there we will begin working seriously on a formal site plan.

Currently we are awaiting some news on a government grant, applied for in the spring, which will give us a boost with progress.

We continue to work closely with the Mayor and council, as well as the CAO as we progress, and greatly appreciate their support in this project. As they say, “build it and they shall come.” Millet Lions Club continues to be excited to get things going for our community!
