LOFA Board of Directors meeting

The next meeting of the LOFA board of directors will be on Sunday, September 1 at 10:00 am at Beaver’s Resort. Everyone is welcome to attend. Hope to see you there!

Beautiful day for a picnic

The weather was perfect for the Lake of the Falls Association’s annual meeting and picnic, held last Sunday August 4 at Beaver’s Resort. The 42 people in attendance enjoyed burgers and brats cooked by grilling expert Jeremy Wehrmann and delicious sides and desserts provided by everyone. Many thanks to president Jan Tesch for coordinating everything so beautifully, and to Tom Ziegler for his invaluable assistance, and for letting us use his lawn. Congratulations to lucky Dani Graf, who won the 50/50 raffle and also won free dues for next year. (We’ll have to remember to stir up the raffle tickets better the next time!)

At the annual meeting all of the officers whose terms were up ran for reelection and nobody else stepped forward, so we have the same board as before. That sure makes my job easier! You can read the minutes from the meeting here.

Come to our annual picnic on Sunday, August 4!

The LOFA annual general membership meeting and picnic will be held on Sunday, August 4 at Beaver’s Resort on Lake of the Falls Road. The meeting will start at 11:00 am with the picnic immediately following.

We’ll vote for new officers (Vice President, Treasurer, and three at-large directors), talk about  our new Fish Count Forms, and anything else lake-related that you’d like to discuss. Questions? Concerns? This is a great time to bring them up!

Please feel free to bring family members and houseguests. Our menu will include brats, burgers, and beverages; if you would like to bring a dish to pass, please feel free to do so, and bring your lawn chairs if you have them. If you haven’t already paid your membership dues, you can pay them at the picnic, and if you would like to participate in the 50/50 raffle, don’t forget to bring some cash! And we’ll have our beautiful LOFA membership signs on sale for $25 each.

Tent set-up will be Saturday, July 28 at about 10:00 am. Volunteers are always needed, so please help out if you can.

Come on out! It’s a great way to meet your neighbors around the lake. Hope to see you there.

Acoustic bat monitoring on May 29th

Bat survey May, 2019Our first bat survey of 2019 revealed at least 3 species of bats thriving around our lake as of May 29, including Little Brown Bats, which are threatened statewide by white-nose syndrome. The surveys are done each year as part of the Wisconsin Bat Program and coordinated locally by the North Lakeland Discovery Center. This is fewer species than last year, but our first survey was conducted a little earlier in the year and along a slightly different route than in previous years; we have two more surveys scheduled for this season, weather permitting. The next survey should be in mid-July and the map will be posted a few weeks later, so stay tuned! Maps from our previous attempts and more information can be seen here and here
