LOFA Picnic 2017

We had a beautiful day for our annual picnic on Sunday, August 5. Thanks to Randy Roets for organizing it, James Wehrmann for cooking the burgers and brats (6 years in a row!), and everyone else who helped with the tent, brought food, and showed up with smiling faces. And thanks to Beaver’s Resort for letting us party on the lawn! Congratulations to Clayton Lester whose 95th birthday we celebrated, and to the winners of the 50/50 raffle. Jim Hanneman won the grand prize and generously donated it back to the Association, Fred and Joan Sass won free dues for next year, and Donna Roets won a fishing rod and Night Bobby donated by Bill and Nancy Dalpiaz.

Our annual picnic is right around the corner!

The LOFA annual general membership meeting and picnic will be held on Saturday, August 5 at Beaver’s Resort on Lake of the Falls. The meeting will start at 11:00 am with the picnic immediately following. The agenda for the membership meeting is as follows:

Fish enhancement and water quality issues
Elections (Vice President and 3 board members)
Any other issues that the membership would like to discuss
Budget

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. 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!

Tent set-up will be Friday, Aug. 4 at about 10:00. Volunteers are always welcome. Looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend!

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.

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.
