Saturday, June 19, 2021. The Dixie will leave the North Webster Town Dock at 9:30 AM. The ride is provided by Dixie Sternwheeler, Inc. at no charge for WLCA members. The new name for this event is the WLCA Family Dixie Ride. The Ride is planned to be a fun event for WLCA members and their families of all ages. Snacks and beverages will be provided by the WLCA. Activities and prizes are planned—especially for our young Cruisers. Please mark your calendar to bring members of your family of all ages with you on this Family Dixie Ride for an enjoyable hour of cruising on the Dixie around Webster Lake, one of the most historic lakes in Indiana. This is a great time to meet and visit with other Webster Lake residents. Dixie Sternwheeler contributes this "Tom Plew Memorial Family Dixie Ride" in memory of Tom Plew, who volunteered many hours of service to both the Dixie and the WLCA. Both organizations are better because of his efforts. This event kicks off the summer season at Webster Lake. All WLCA members and their families are encouraged to attend and enjoy a beautiful trip around Webster Lake while cruising on the Dixie. Operation of the Dixie is subject to then-current COVID restrictions, required maximum load restrictions and weather permitting.
In the event the Dixie is unable to operate on June 19, this Family Event will be held in the North Webster Town Park. A covered pavilion, playground and swimming/beach areas are available at the Park.
Saturday, July 3, 2021 at 10:00 PM. The WLCA organizes and contracts for the annual Fourth of July Fireworks show which has been a highlight of the Fourth of July holiday at Webster Lake for many years. The fireworks are funded exclusively by donations to the WLCA Fireworks Fund from the residents and businesses of the Webster Lake and North Webster area. Neither membership dues nor donations to the Weed Fund of the WLCA are used to pay for the annual fireworks show. The rain date is Saturday, July 10.
Thanks to all lake area residents and local businesses and organizations for their contributions to WLCA's Fireworks Fund during 2020!
