Wister Lake holiday tradition in danger of being cancelled

August 15, 2012

According to Karen Wages, CEO of the Poteau Chamber of Commerce, the popular Christmas season tradition "Lights on the Island" may burn out this year at Wister Lake State Park due to the lack of manpower.
Wister Lake park officials informed organizers that the park staff would no longer help put up the Christmas lights display or help in any manner that might require manpower from any park employee. 
“This is an extremely disappointing turn of events”, said Karen Wages with the Poteau Chamber of Commerce”.
