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.

LOFA-sponsored “Ted Talk” coming soon!

LOFA Board president Jan Tesch has done a great job arranging and promoting this upcoming presentation by local author Ted Rulseh, scheduled for May 18 at the Mercer Community Center. Thanks, Jan! This will be a great way to learn more about the lakes we love.

Here’s  a printable version of the poster for you to hang on your refrigerator or give to your friends.

LOFA Picnic 2018

We had record-setting attendance at this year’s picnic as 52 people enjoyed brats, burgers and lots of delicious side dishes and desserts on a really beautiful day, last Sunday July 29. A big thanks to Jeremy “Muskie Hunter” Wehrmann for manning the grill, to Tom at Beaver’s for his very generous donation of food and supplies, and to everyone who helped set up and take down. Randy did a great job putting it all together, and everyone had a good time. Terry Thayer won the 50/50 raffle and kindly donated his winnings back to the Association, and Amy Thayer won free dues for next year.

Our membership meeting and election of new officers took place before the picnic. Read the minutes and election results here.
