Young women and mature women alike are invited to join a new philanthropic group known as “Mermaids of the Lake.” The group is sponsored by the Woman’s Club and organized by Lyne Hall. The group will be selected in time to be recognized at a community-wide Mermaid Festival on August 22 at Indian Beach. Vendors also are wanted for that event. According to Lyne, mermaids will be expected to show expertise in three areas:
- Generosity of spirit
- Prowess in the water
At the Mermaid Festival, a Mermaid Queen will be crowned and presented with a $250 prize. Depending on the kind of response received, a retinue of several other Mermaids of the Lake will be appointed that will help carry the Canyon Lake Woman’s Club’s philanthropic message throughout the community. The queen and her retinue will be asked to make appearances at the CLWC’s various fundraisers.
