Of course, trying to live a green responsible life in the same town as a 364-acre amusement and water park can sometimes feel pretty futile. That is one reason we were compelled to start this foundation – Lake Erie has been problematic in its pollution levels since the 1960s – before factory waste dumping was as regulated – and we’ve worked so hard to keep the lake as clean as we can.
We were a group of residents who saw potential in this beautiful lake – we remembered the days when it glimmered – when we’d jump in off a rope swing – when parties were floatillas.
But we decided… there would always be people who live here who survive and love their city. That will not die when the park does. So it’s our responsibility to keep things as nice as we can to have a better starting point later.
