Tama City Council members heard a report on Monday night, June 16, from Julie Chyma on the Boat Regatta on Cherry Lake planned for July 12. It was postponed from June 21 due to weather.
She said the Tama Fire Department is planning to add canoe races to the afternoon activities. Chyma is a member of the Community Activities Group which is actively hosting a series of local events.
A request for the Tama American Legion to have beer sales for the regatta and canoe races was denied because alcohol consumption is prohibited at the city-owned Cherry Lake. Food and soft drinks may be sold however.
