ENID LAKE – Mike Robinson, the Supervisory Ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Enid Lake, will present a program on the history of Enid Lake at the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery this Saturday, June 11, at 2 p.m.
Robinson has been employed by the Corps since 1972 and has worked on many local historical projects including Ford’s Well.
