The beginning of the summer season is definitely a reason to celebrate. In keeping with that sense of celebration at Lake of the Ozarks, we have decided to take a break from our normal Cheers and Jeers and focus on a week's worth of Cheers.

Cheers to ...

the Lake of the Ozarks Water Safety Committee for their campaign to promote safety on Lake of the Ozarks.

Cheers to ...

the high school athletes headed to Jefferson City this week for the state track and field competition. The lake area will be well-represented. Good luck to all!

Cheers to ...

Cheers to ...

Iberia teacher Tiffany Caldwell for inspiring her students to express themselves through art.

Cheers to ...

And last but certainly not least, cheers to summer at Lake of the Ozarks.
