JORDAN LAKE-GREAT MEMORIES!
The April program for the Lake Odessa Area Historical Society focused on our MEMORIES of Jordan Lake. John Waite presented the program with some historical data on the lake but emphasized the importance of the lake as a natural resource. Anyone who has lived in this area has some connection or memory with this vital aspect of our locality. Many shared their recollections of learning "how" to swim in the lake, picnics and excursions and many other events. Several recalled Coach Wall Abbott leading the beach program and his influence in their lives. This video above, from Youtube, is a great collection of current photos of Jordan Lake and is how we are chronicling history now in 2009. Thank you to Ryan Linsea for allowing us to use this video to spark those memories of our own adventures on Jordan Lake.
