History is repeating itself, do you want to be a part of it?   
The Queen of the Lake III Restoration project will begin 
with community and volunteers meetings. This sternwheeler will bring back hope and grace for the lake we love & that holds so much history. 
History fact:  Both of the past sternwheelers were built on Buckeye Lake 
and cruised her waters for 20 years.  

The Queen of the Lake III will follow that historic path as well.

A presentation was viewed about Ohio's WWII Veterans, with some stories being told by the servicemen. Afterwards, J-me Braig, Director and daughter of the founder, Donna Braig, read aloud some of the names of the BL men that went off to war during that time. Some had generations of servicemen and servicewomen. Then, J-me opened it up to everyone to tell their personal stories and many did. Stories from WWII and other conflicts like Korea, Viet Nam and the Cold War. Refreshments were served.
