Another successful Annual Picnic!

The weather was lovely last Sunday, so we went tentless for the LOFA Annual Meeting and Picnic, and met on the shady lawn south of Beaver’s. Twenty-eight people enjoyed delicious burgers, brats, side dishes and homemade desserts, and many of us lingered long after the food was gone, enjoying the day and each other’s company. At the meeting we thanked Dave Sino for his years of service on the board, welcomed new board member Chuck Spittler, and heard reports on fish and water quality, our family of bald eagles, and the invasive species up the river from Lake of the Falls. You can read the Annual Meeting minutes here.  A big “thank-you” goes to Jan and Tom Tesch for organizing everything, to the volunteers who helped with  set-up and take-down, and to Tom Ziegler for his expert cooking. A good time was had by all — hope to see everyone again next year!

Upcoming events

The spring LOFA board meeting is coming up this Sunday, May 29 at 10:00 at Beavers Resort on Lake of the Falls Road. Everyone is welcome to attend! Bring your questions and concerns and get to know some of your neighbors around the lake.

 

Remember that Rice Lake’s Great Weed Pull is scheduled for 9 days between May 31 and June 7. Keeping the invasive Curly Leaf Pondweed contained upriver is a vital step in preventing its spread down the chain and into Lake of the Falls. Volunteers are still needed, so if you have a free day and want to do something pretty great for everyone on the Turtle River chain, follow this link to the Rice Lake Association’s website and sign up!

 

And Zach Wilson of the Iron County Department of Land and Water Conservation is leading river trips on the Turtle River the week of June 12-16 to identify and remove CLP growing between Pike Lake and Rice. Canoes, paddles and related supplies will be provided, so all we need are some willing paddlers. We’ve created a new Google Group to help coordinate this effort;

Another great Annual Picnic!

Forty LOFA members and guests came out for our Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic on July 31 and a good time was had by all! Thanks go to our illustrious Picnic Committee and to Tom and Nikki at Beaver’s for organizing the event, to everyone who came out on Saturday to help put up the tent, and to Jeremy Wehrmann for manning the grill and cooking those delicious brats and burgers. And to everyone who brought sides and desserts, yum! Thank you! It’s always so much fun to have everyone together and catch up on the news from the previous year. Here are the minutes from the Annual Meeting.

 

The fall board meeting, originally scheduled for September 4, has been rescheduled to Sunday, September 18 at 10:00 so more board members can attend. As always, LOFA members are invited and encouraged to come out for the board meetings, and, as always, we’ll be meeting at Beaver’s.
