Mark Twain Lake – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake would like to invite the public to the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center on July 20th, 2013 for Lake Safety Day.  Between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., come celebrate with the partners and volunteers that make the Mark Twain Lake area a fun and safe place to visit.  The Perry Fire Department will be recruiting children of all ages to challenge them in fire hose contests.  A variety of local law enforcement will be on hand to answer questions, introduce themselves, and showcase their equipment.  The Monroe City Ambulance District will have an ambulance on-site open and available for the public to view and the NEMO Backcountry Horsemen will be there to discuss their on-going trail maintenance efforts as well as have a horse on hand for up close viewing.  In addition to all this, there will also be a petting zoo courtesy of Heidi’s Lil’ Ranch and free snow cones for everyone in attendance to enjoy!  Snacks will be available throughout the afternoon.

It’s already been a long hot summer so come and cool off with the fun activities and attractions that will be available throughout the afternoon.  The M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center is located south of the Clarence Cannon Dam on Rt. J.  For more information, please email or call 573-735-4097.
