On Tuesday, October 13, Prior Lake Rotary Club members joined City and Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community leaders at Pike Lake Park.  The occasion? They all participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the formal opening of the bituminous parking lot and trail at Pike Lake Park. Former and current Community Service Co-Chairs Vic Noer and Corey Stich were on hand, along with President Joe Dols and Immediate Past President Bill Schult, who was Club President during the shelter project.  Frank Boyles and Gerry Wersal were also key members of the project team. The project was made possible through a District Grant and monetary participation from other Rotary Clubs. 
As City Manager Frank Boyles stated, "The trail was made possible by a grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. Of course the focal point of the trail, in addition to the wonders of Mother Nature, is the shelter made possible through funds donated by the Prior Lake Rotary. Like so many things in Prior Lake, the Pike Lake Park underscores the value of the partnerships we share in our community." 
Vic Noer, Corey Stich, and Joe Dols represented the Club.
