Ponca City Now - May 19, 2016 3:14 pm

Saturday is the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking for Kaw Lake.

To celebrate, the Kaw Lake Association and the Kaw Lake Educational Foundation will host a celebration at the Overlook area at 11 a.m. This will be the time the groups will announce the next step in the Overlook Project, the funding of the Environmental Assessment required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to obtain a lease agreement.

This also will be an opportunity to let the public know the vision for the Overlook and let them see the area. The groups will celebrate the economic impact Kaw Lake has had on northern Oklahoma for the past 50 years.

A one-hour celebration begins at 11 a.m. with a few speakers and the cutting of a cake to mark the anniversary.
