it was a weenie roast, but nobody came. Price of fuel, tainted weenies, republican underpinnings, it kept the public away.

MY SENIOR PROM WAS AT THE AMERICAN PIE FACILITY, AND THEN I WENT TO A PROM THE FOLLOWING YEAR THAT WAS HELD IN THE BALLROOM PAVILION..WHAT A SHAME THAT THESE WONDERFUL MEMORIES WILL NO LONGER LIVE FOR OTHERS TO CHERISH..PEOPLE ARE TO WRAPPED UP INTO MONEY AND POLITICS THAT THEY DONT REMEMBER WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE A KID AND THE DREAMS AND FAIRY TALES THAT YOU GROW UP WITH, AND DISCOVER THROUGHT LAUGHS AND GOOD CLEAN ENTERTAINMENT, WISH THERE WAS MORE WE COULD ALL DO AS A WHOLE GROUP TO SAVE THIS PAST HISTORICAL PARK, THE BEAUTY OF IT IS HELD WITHIN ALL OF US, AND WE KNOW WHAT IT MEANT TO ALL!!

i also went to see the devastation that happened to the park. I agree that this was no accident. a group had major plans for the ballroom and i think someone got wind of their ideas and didn't want anything good to happen. I feel like i have lost a close friend i have been in shock ever since it happened. I pray that they will find some answers to this horrible nightmare. its hard to believe that a simular fire happened 100 years ago. lets bring our history back to the community.

How about a State Park or National Historical Site making it off-limits for development? Condos are blight for such a beautiful lakeshore area.

My family and I have been saying this for years. Why is this park and hotel not protected as an historical landmark? There is no other place like it. It is a shame. So is the park for sure not re-opening this year? I saw comments in a new article of the manager saying despite this he is still optomistic.???

I have also wondered this many times. Why would it not be protected?
