The pier is expected to be complete by Easter, providing a place for meditation and reflection with incredible lake views. Funding was given in memory of Erle and Mary Peacock, former Lake Junaluska summer residents, by their family. The Peacocks served as grand marshals in the 2008 Independence Day Parade at Lake Junaluska and established an endowment for maintenance of the lake’s tennis courts. Mary was a United Methodist minister and Erle worked in education, medicine and law throughout his career.
A dedication is planned for June. Over the years, charitable gifts have allowed for countless improvements to the lake and grounds at Lake Junaluska. Donate at www.lakejunaluska.com/support.
