Harris-Lake Park students earn Big 10 Reading Challenge title
The University of Iowa women’s basketball team recently beat the University of Nebraska, but in this type of unique competition, the credit goes entirely to students at Harris-Lake Park Elementary School.
H-LP third-, fourth- and fifth-graders were recently crowned as champion of a Big 10 Reading Challenge. Representing the University of Iowa women’s basketball team, the H-LP students defeated St. Bernadette School, 154-122, for the championship. The school in Bellevue, Neb. represented the NU women’s basketball team.
Lake Park pool finds its niche in a county of lakes
The arrival of summer will mark the 46th season since community boosters threw Allen Arnold, Chief of the Lake Park Service Board, into the deep end of the new Lake Park Municipal Pool.
Fortunately, water plant employees made sure he had a soft landing — the pool took about 24 hours to fill and needed some staff overtime to be ready for the July 11, 1973, opening.
Help Wanted: Lifeguards and WSI Instructors
Lake Park pool is accepting applications for lifeguards and WSI instructors (Water Safety Instructors). Applicants must be certified in Lifeguard Training/First Aid and CPR for the Professional Rescuer (or equivalent). WSI certification is optional but strongly recommended. Stop in at City Hall, 217 Market Street, Lake Park, or call 712-832-3527 for an application.

Donations needed for renovations to basketball and tennis courts
We are working to raise funds to renovate the tennis and basketball courts in the city park. Funds raised will be used to resurface the courts and install a new fence, basketball hoops, tennis court net and utility poles.
It is exciting to announce that in September, the Dickinson County Endowment Fund awarded the City of Lake Park $10,000 to update and resurface the tennis & basketball courts. Our goal to finish the project is $20,000.
If you would like to make any donations toward this project, please contact Marie at the Lake Park City Hall at 712-832-3527.
