Eight Lake Area fire and rescue agencies have received part of the proceeds from Lake Race 2013. This year’s event was held June 8–9 above the Bagnell Dam.
On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Dave Leathers, publisher of Showcase Publishing, one of the event sponsors, presented a check for $9,520 to Lake Ozark Fire Chief Mark Amsinger for eight different agencies.
Amsinger said the money will be used by the different departments for equipment purchases and other expenses.
Money from this year’s Lake Race went to the Gravois, Lake Ozark, Rocky Mount, Mid County, Osage Beach, and Sunrise Beach Fire Protection Districts as well as the Eldon Fire Department and the Miller County Ambulance District.
Speed, power, and excitement will return to the Lake of the Ozarks on with Lake Race 2014, scheduled for June 7–8, 2014. The race headquarters once again will be Beavers at the Dam.
