CEDAR LAKE | Beach season is starting, big events are on the horizon and the town’s stretch of lake sand needs a cleanup.

Town Councilman Greg Parker asked at June's meeting that a cleanup be undertaken at Cedar Lake’s small beach area near the Town Complex.

“There’s cans, bottles, debris,” he said.

The beach area was cleaned a couple of times last season but not so far this year, officials said.

Cedar Lake acquired the beach area via a land swap with the adjacent Lighthouse Restaurant, which used land previously owned by the town for its expansion.

The town beach is open to the public and is next to the town’s municipal buildings, Town Hall and Police Department.'

The cleanup effort precedes the 32nd annual Cedar Lake Summerfest, which opens Wednesday on the town grounds. There will be food, events, games, fireworks and entertainment.

There also will be a free performance by the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra at the Town Complex this month.

The lakeside concert is sponsored by the Town Council and the Cedar Lake Chamber of Commerce. For more information, go to the July town newsletter at
