The Green Lake Association celebrated its local stars, those who help and support the organization, at its 10th-annual gala last week Saturday evening.

   The association recognized three “Watershed Heroes”: Shoreline Boat Center, Avalon Creek Farm and Charlie Marks, who passed away this winter and had spent decades as the Green Lake Sanitary District administrator revolutionizing conservation efforts for a cleaner lake.

   During the evening, thousands of dollars were raised for the association and its three-pillar efforts to create a healthier Big Green Lake.
