Big celebration. Thanks to the incredible generosity of their supporters, the Ruby Lake Lagoon Society announced that on Friday, Sept. 29 at 3:45pm, with 4 hours to spare, Irvines Landing property they have worked so hard to secure is officially owned by the Lagoon Society. What an accomplishment and a testament to the generosity of people near and far and to the excitement surrounding this project. Executive Director Michael Jackson is thrilled and says, “now the real work of building PODS begins.” Next up, the society and its team will be working towards engineering studies, architectural drawings, strategic planning all which they hope to complete by Christmas. Congratulations. For more information visit lagoonsociety.com or the Ruby Lake Lagoon Society Facebook page.
