neighbors and co-workers of Erie Mining Company. This became an
Annual Event and grew to become the Hoyt Lakes Water Carnival.

a new team. The previous Water Carnival Committee Members retired
after several years and after the big 50th
Anniversary Celebration. The responsibilities of the Committee
