WHAT:     Rep. Jesse Topper (R-Bedford/Franklin/Fulton) will be joined by Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Executive Director Tim Schaeffer, Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans, state and local officials, and community partners to celebrate the completion of a dam rehabilitation project at Meadow Grounds Lake in Ayr Township, Fulton County. The dam impounds Roaring Run and several other small streams to create the 204-acre lake located on State Game Lands 53. Meadow Grounds Lake was drained in 2013 when a leak was discovered in the dam. Refilling of the lake began on April 9. Details will be provided on the resumption of recreational activities at the lake, including fishing, boating and hunting. A ceremonial stocking of minnows will take place to mark the first step in a multi-year fish-restocking plan at the lake.

WHEN:     Friday, April 30 at 10 a.m.

WHERE:    Meadow Grounds Lake Dam, located at southern end of lake off Mountain Drive, McConnellsburg.
