Friends of Cordell Hull Lake, a partnership between The United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Cordell Hull Lake Community, is proud to announce “Dinner on the Dam”. This fundraising dinner will be held Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. FOCHL is honored to host this special event that will allow attendees an exclusive opportunity to dine on
the historic Cordell Hull Dam in celebration of the Lake’s 50th anniversary.
The Friends of Cordell Hull Lake is a non-profit group of community citizens and business owners with a mission of promoting and preserving the natural, historical, and recreational resources of beautiful Cordell Hull Lake. Ashley Webster, a ranger with the US Army Corps of Engineers, and assisting with the event said, “The timing of Friends of Cordell Hull Lake’s newly formed group and Cordell Hull Dam’s 50th anniversary couldn’t have come at a better time. People still mention hearing Dolly Parton
perform at the original dedication in 1973. The USACE hopes the Dinner on the Dam will be an event talked about for years to come. USACE has constraints on what we can offer the public so having the nonprofit Friends Group leading dinner is a great way to end the day’s celebration. That same day, the USACE will be having dam tours and a dedication event at 1 PM.”
