The smallest lake in Indiana with a boat ramp now has a wooden dock by that ramp.
The dock, 19 feet long and 4 feet wide, is courtesy of Greg Larrabee of Decatur, a Bellmont High School senior who built the structure as an Eagle Scout project on Kekionga Lake, by Evergreen Court, off Mercer Ave.
Larrabee, 18, is a longtime member of Boy Scout Troop 70 and thanks his last two scoutmasters, Charlie Brune and Don Hess, for their support.
The Berne Community Development Corporation (CDC) will dedicate the Settlers Monument in the Muensterberg Plaza at the corner of US 27 and SR218 in Berne on Sunday, Oct. 17, beginning at 2 p.m.
Jerome and Barbara Lehman of Terre Haute donated the funds for the monument, officials said in a news release. They and their family members will attend the celebration and will unveil the six foot statue of early settlers wearing 1850s attire, including a man standing with his arms outstretched and a woman holding a baby.
