New owner puts fresh face on Canyon Lake Marina
By DAVID DEKUNDER
CANYON LAKE — New owner Steve Kennedy is radically changing the look of Canyon Lake Marina.
"What we are doing is a total facelift,” Kennedy said of the marina, which is undergoing extensive renovations for its late May grand reopen-
Kennedy, who bought the manna in late February, said there will be major improvements in safety, service and at die former Blue Pelican Restaurant
The most important improvements will be made in the dock area to make it safer for patrons.
“We are widening the min walcway from the shoreline to E Dock, the furthest dock,” Kennedy said. “We are putting in a whole new electrical system, upgrading it up to the national safety code ... It will have a stronger cavity to carry electrical lines. In storms, the dock will ride better and be safer.”

store hts been remodeled sod the manna's offices have been moved from the Blue Pelican Restaurant (which will now be renamed Papa Docks Cantina De La Marina) to the dock to “better serve the boaters and the general public,” Kennedy said.
“General repair, cleanups and rcfiir-
Kennedy said Papa Docks will undergo a complete overhaul, with additional indoor seating and a 3,500 square foot outside deck planned.
The seating capacity will be 250.
“The entire atmosphere of the restaurant will be unique because of the
decor, which will include an outside nil deck made of steel wagon wheels,” Kennedy said. “We needed that as a novelty, but we also did that for safety reasons... We did that for strength and uniqueness. The total outside has been refurbished from old bam wood and metal, all of which came from around Comal and Blanco counties and as far away as Durant, Oklahoma.”
The inside of the restaurant will feature items from the Old West, old nautical items, old porcelain signs, such as the original Canyon Lake Airport sign, mounted Texas exotic animals and a bar made from a boat.
'The bar was made from a boat in the marina, which was here for approximately 12 years,” Kennedy said. “It was an old sailboat the man bought 12 years ago to be his retirement project Four years ago he died. The widow continued to pay his slip. She couldn't part with it because it was his baby. She quit paying the slip rent two years ago. It had enormous willpower. It wouldn't sink. It had a will to live.

Every year, thousands of Nations. ., durance agents go back to high school to gist students involved in The Nationwide Insurance Prom Promise. A program that gives kids the chance to commit to an alcohol and drug free prom night.
And while teenagers and insurance agents have been known to disagree on issues of music and fashion, there is one thing they can agree on. The importance of having a safe prom, just ask the more than 3-1 million students the program reached this year alone.
Some students may never understand why anyone would volunteer to gp back to school. Fortunately for them, though, volunteering is something our agents feel strongly about. And that's exactly what makes them ^o special. Dave is proud to sponsor Canyon High School, New i High School and Smithson Valley High School in the Prom Promise program.
