Over 400 people enjoyed the screenings of the new documentary, “On the Shores of Lake Dora,” in March. The film follows several key developments in the history of Mount Dora’s waterfront with insights from local citizens Shirley Grantham, Jefferson Ray III, and Brandon Wald. The documentarian is Matt Hyland, a graduate of Mount Dora High School and a University of Central Florida film student. DVDs of the documentary are on sale for $20 at the history museum.
