Some of Our Favorite Rumors!
It is always interesting to hear all the rumors that spring up during a fund-raising campaign. Here are a few we’ve heard:
- The 136 year old Gull Lake dam is good for another 100 years, so it doesn’t need to be reconstructed now.
- We are not really building a dam – its all a scam!
- The project’s goal is to help other local area lakes siphon off flood waters through our dam.
- The Michigan DNR Grant is guaranteed so we don’t need to collect all $700,000.
- The 4 local townships and/or 2 surrounding counties will fund any additional fund raising shortfall.
- Wealthy residents have committed to making up any campaign shortfall so we don’t need to collect from all residents.
- Jeff Price is not a real person (my personal favorite!).
None of these rumors are true!
