   Officials at Grenada Lake are gearing up for what they expect will be the busiest weekend of the year, and they want everyone to have a fun, safe time.
   The Army Corps of Engineers, along with personnel from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will be on-hand to patrol the lake and its environs and to keep people safe this Memorial Day.
   “Memorial Day is usually our busiest weekend because the weather is nice and it hasn’t yet gotten too hot,” said Ranger Artie Hoff with the Army Corps of Engineers.
   Water safety is the name of the game, Hoff said.
