Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation announces record donations supporting veterans


Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation (CCVF) announced today the largest donations in its history to veterans' charities! Thanks to the generous support of Pinnacle Club residents, donors around the Cedar Creek Lake area and our sponsors, CCVF was able to donate a total of $55,000 in 2019. This record amount represents an increase of 20% over 2018.

CCVF donated $35,000 to Fisher House, $8,000 to Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, $7,000 to Camp V (Tyler, TX), and $1,000 to Hope For The Warriors. Additionally, CCVF donated $4,000 to the Payne Springs Volunteer Fire Department for their air show support including water operations, FAA required emergency response plan and the onsite first aid station.

"CCVF achieved several firsts in 2019 and we plan to grow these new avenues of fundraising into the future", said Lyn Thomas, CCVF's President. "We added a fishing tournament (CCVF's 1st Annual White Bass Fishing Tournament) held at Cedar Creek Lake as well as a fundraising event at the Historical Aviation Memorial Museum in Tyler, Texas (The Magnificent 7 Warbird Expo).. These new events proved to be successful fundraising events and will be held again in 2020."

CCVF was also blessed to develop a partnership with Brookshires grocery stores around Cedar Creek Lake.. CCVF is working again with Brookshires to continue this partnership which makes such a significant difference for East Texas Veterans.

As always, none of the success of CCVF would happen without the immeasurable support of the members and residents of Pinnacle Golf Club and the Cedar Creek Lake community. Blue Heron Properties, located at Pinnacle Golf Club, stepped up in a big way and sponsored a Huey Helicopter so local lake residents and guests could experience the once in a lifetime ride over beautiful Cedar Creek Lake. Some of our other sponsors include Sewell Infiniti of Dallas, KCKL Radio, and Amber DiLane Homes.

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 23)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 81 degrees; 0.06 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs and jerk baits very early on creek ledges and near boat docks. Shaky heads, black or purple plastic worms, and diving cranks fished in deeper water near boat docks, main lake drop-offs, and timber are productive later in the day. Hybrids and sand bass are being caught off main lake points and humps with slabs and live bait. Crappie are good with jigs and minnows in brush piles, deep water boat docks, and near submerged timber in 15-28’. Catfish are good in 12-25’.
