Celebration will be held this week commemorating completion of Wolf Creek Dam repairs


Somerset —

  The public is encouraged to attend the celebratory event. Parking is available at nearby Halcomb’s Landing and a shuttle service to the ceremony location on the work platform begins at 9:30 a.m. EDT. Attendees will be able to walk from Halcomb’s Landing to the ceremony site, but the distance is about a mile each way.
  The event will be held, rain or shine. A tent will cover only a portion of the seating area so participants are encouraged to bring an umbrella if inclement weather is anticipated.
  The program is designed to last about an hour, but could last up to an hour and 15 minutes, according to Lee Roberts, public affairs officer for the Corps.
  “I’ll be there,” said Van Back, assistant director for Somerset-Pulaski Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This is a big thing for us.” He predicted many marina operators and representatives of tourism-related businesses will also attend.
