      Mine too, Dorothy! We went to visit my grandparents and it was one of the neatest parts of the visit for sure! A place I’ll always remember. It’s amazing how many lives it touched and how many folks have such amazing and wonderful memories of it. Send us any memoirs of pics if you want, we’ll post them! =)

    Charles and I have been married for over 55 years, but I still remember the first time I saw him — he was sitting on the lifeguard stand at Crystal Lake. We were introduced a few hours later in the dance hall. Our Cupid that day was Richard Pridgin,, and before Charles’ break (from lifeguard duty) was over, we had a date for his night off. I spent many summer evenings in the Crystal Lake dance hall waiting for the lake to close so Charles could join us. We have two daughters, four grown grandchildren, and a great grandson, and it all started at Crystal Lake.

      Frances, yes, so many wonderful memories at Crystal Lake! Thank you for sharing. I can’t wait to share the lovely comments and stories with Ms. Whiddon and her family. They will now be maintaining this site so they are getting to see how special this place is to so many people. 🙂 Best to you and Charles!
