CEDAR LAKE | Lake of the Red Cedars Museum enthusiasts hope to put a new roof on the building with a fundraiser Friday at the Lighthouse Restaurant on Constitution Avenue.
"Top-drawer appetizers" and drinks of choice from an open bar are featured from 7 to 10 p.m., organizers said. Patrons will have a birds-eye view of the town's popular Summerfest fireworks show on the lake from the restaurant's upper level.
The cost is $50 per person with $15 going to the museum project. A $10 parking fee will be charged but waived for restaurant patrons and fireworks party guests.
"The idea is to let people view the fireworks from the upper level in an air-conditioned, bug-free environment," said Robert Carnahan, Cedar Lake Historical Association president.
The association operates the museum, which is leased from the town for $1 annually.
