A Memo from Main Street Marina Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) [Updated 3/20/2020]

Main Street Marina, Lake Taneycomo, Branson Missouri

March 20, 2020

The Paddlewheel, Main Street Lake Cruises and the entire Main Street Marina family want to thank all of you for supporting us during this difficult time, and also coming together to support the Branson business community at large.

As always, our number one priority is the health, safety and happiness of our guests, employees and their families. With that in mind, we’ve decided to temporarily suspend all operations now through May 18 in order to join our fellow citizens and Branson businesses in the effort to fight the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

This decision was made carefully, as a work family, after much internal discussion with management, staff and after consulting with the appropriate local experts and authorities.

Again, our number one priority is your health and happiness. To us, you’re more than just patrons, you’re friends and family. We look forward to seeing all your smiling faces again as soon as this is all over. Until then, stay safe, wash those hands, and don’t lose that #LakeAttitude

There is a short film called “Pray They Stand Down” being filmed in the Ozarks and they have chosen The Paddlewheel as one of their scene locations. This movie will shine a powerful light on the effects PTSD has on our veterans. Damian Costello, with Costello Films, is teaming up with Tristin Ray and Clayton Cooper, of Stingray films for this all local project.

Carolyn Sires, who represents Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities (ECAD), was on hand with her service dogs Tuna and Chloe. These puppies will be involved with this movie as well. She chose to work with “Pray They Stand Down” because of the way the script portrays the effects of PTSD and gives a glimpse of the toll Post-Traumatic Stree Disorder plays on our American veterans. Ms. Sires was most recently involved in promoting the movie “To Be of Service” airing on Netflix, and is an important advocate for the PAWS act (Puppies Assisting Wounded Soldiers). Several ECAD puppies are a part of the movie.

The movie will be entirely filmed in the Ozarks and feature local actors. This film will be something that the area can certainly be proud of. We are excited to be involved with them. You can find out more about the film at R33LFILM.COM.
