Local merchants are helping the effort to restore Lake Neatahwanta.

This Monday, many local businesses will be offering $1 donation cards — in the shape of Lake Neatahwanta — in order to raise local funds for the cleanup to begin.

Second Ward Councilman Dan Knopp presented the idea to the Fulton Community Revitalization Project Board.

The Lake Neatahwanta Revitalization Project will be partially funded by a grant from Senator Patty Ritchie and other private donors.

“Every member of our community can show their own support by donating $1 to this very important project,” said Knopp. “Just sign your name, your family’s name or just write a note of encouragement. Your personal donation will be displayed by the businesses to show your support for the lake cleanup.”

All contributions will go directly to the restoration of Lake Neatahwanta.

The city recently partnered with the Fulton Community Revitalization Corporation to begin a comprehensive restoration project.

When completed, it will enhance the area’s tourism, economic development, and recreation opportunities for the community, Mayor Ron Woodward said.
