Board meeting minutes

The minutes from the latest Board of Directors meeting have been added to our About LOFA page for anyone who’s interested in reading them. It was a pretty good meeting! Also, there is now a link on the About our lake page to the Citizen Lake Monitoring reports (water testing for clarity and temperature) past and present for Lake of the Falls and First Black Lake, plus reports from other area lakes; scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see these.

Kiosk

Our new informational kiosk, donated by the Lake of the Falls Association and built by thumbnailLOFA member Elmer Gosh, was approved at the Mercer Town Board meeting on Thursday, September 1 and installed next to the public landing on Moose Creek Lane by an enthusiastic group of volunteers on the morning of September 2. We’re grateful to Elmer for his efforts. It looks terrific! The board has designated a committee to take responsibility for the materials posted inside. After years of discussion about this, it’s great to see it in place.

Thanks to Jack S., Mike M., and Tom T. for contributing these photos.To enlarge them for a slideshow, just click on the first one.

A beautiful day for a picnic!

The Lake of the Falls Association’s annual picnic was last Sunday and we all had a great time! Thanks to Lynn and Jim at Beaver’s for hosting, and to everyone who helped out and brought food to share; and a BIG thanks to James Wehrmann for cooking the burgers and brats to perfection for the sixth year in a row.

Our membership meeting and election of new officers took place before the picnic. Minutes and election results will be posted soon.

Seaplanes on Lake of the Falls

Some board members have gotten questions from area residents about the seaplanes that come and go on our lake. Pilot Jim Hannemann sent along this helpful information to answer some of those questions. It’s interesting reading. Thanks, Jim.
