Lt. Governor Becky Skillman Stops In At McCormick’s Creek State Park

As part of her Hoosier Crossroads Tour, Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman made a stop at McCormick’s Creek State Park to speak with Indiana DNR officials. When she arrived, she expressed how proud she and Governor Mitch Daniels are of the DNR members across the state for their service to the parks they work at, and to their education of the children who visit the parks.

After a few brief words, she walked around to talk personally with each person in attendance. In the top photo on the right, Skillman is shown shaking hands and speaking with Bill Enstrom, who works as a maintenance suprvisor at Shakamak State Park.

In bottom photo, Skillman speaks with Lee Ann Cunningham, the dining room manager at the Canyon Inn inside MCSP.

Skillman explained during her visit that plans are currently underway for Indiana’s bicentennial celebration. During the centennial celebration in 1916, McCormick’s Creek State Park was named Indiana’s first state park. Even today, it is among the country’s greatest parks and has served as a model for other states. (Photos by Donna Hardy)
