Natasha Deane, president of Friends of Cordell Hull Lake, said, “The 'Friends of Cordell Hull Lake’s partnership between Smith and Jackson County communities and the USACE is a real boom for the lake community. Our fundraising efforts not only support educational and recreational activities on Cordell Hull Lake, but they also support the community itself by providing new and improved lake access points and memorable settings for events and special occasions. Our October 7th ‘Dinner on the Dam’ event will be spectacular and certainly memorable! We hope you’ll join us in supporting the Friends of Cordell Hull Lake by becoming a member or supporting one of our many events through a direct contribution.
