    Events & Activities

    Lake Treatment

    Initial treatment for Eurasian Watermilfoil takes place during the later part of June, (once water temperature is sufficient). Notices are posted at all waterfront cottages. 

                STAY OFF THE LAKE ON DAY OF TREATMENT !       
            STAY OUT OF THE WATER ON DAY OF TREATMENT !

    Treatment is more effective if water is not disturbed for 24 hours.

    THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATION !

    Lake Cleanup Day

    We all pick up trash and litter, but each year we designate one special day to really focus on looking for trash in our own neighborhoods to keep our lake surroundings neat and tidy!

    Garage Sale

    Each year closets, barns and garages get cleaned out and usable items are donated for the Association Garage Sale. Bring your donations to the Clubhouse Tuesday through Thursday during the week of the sale (no shoes, clothing, doors or windows accepted). Volunteer for an hour if you can to help organize and price items. Sale runs Friday and Saturday from 9-3. Proceeds benefit the Association.
