Shady Lakes Closing Shop

A local attraction known for fishing will officially be closing its doors on 30 October.

Jan Phillips is one of the owners of Shady Lakes, which has been a part of the Phillips family since 1962. Even though the Phillips family is closing the door on Shady Lakes, Jan hopes whoever ends up buying the fishing hole can keep the tradition going. The owners have yet to put the property on the market. Shady Lakes was originally just a bait farm when it was first purchased by the Phillips family in 1962. Once they bought it, they quickly converted it into what it is today.
