Coulee Dam and Elmer City are only a couple of miles apart, but one woman is trying to get them closer together.
Apparently her efforts have shown fruit, because a potluck get together planned for Saturday has been cancelled.
Glo Carroll, who lives on Stevens Avenue, in West Coulee Dam, said Tuesday that people are talking and getting along better. “That’s what we were trying to do when we scheduled a potluck lunch at Douglas Park for Saturday for residents of the two towns.”
She attended Coulee Dam council meetings when there was contention between the two towns over the proposed wastewater treatment plant.
“We are all neighbors, and we should be friends,” she stated Tuesday.
“The tone of conversation is much lower and there’s evidence that what we wanted to happen is happening,” Carroll stated as she cancelled the planned potluck.
“We may try to do something after the fall election in November,” she added.
