Together again

The Lake of the Falls Association Membership Meeting and Annual Picnic on Sunday couldn’t have been nicer with 29 people attending the meeting and 47 at the picnic. It was great to get back together with everyone after such a long absence and find out what’s been going on around the lake! Thanks to Board President Jan Tesch for organizing everything and to Tom and Nikki at Beaver’s for providing the great food.

 

Board member Bill Dalpiaz reported on his latest conversation with WDNR Fisheries Biologist Zach Lawson about the recent Walleye count in the lake; the official results of the test, including population estimates, can be read here. And board member Cindy Moriarity talked about the aquatic invasive plant Curly Leaf Pondweed, which is present upriver and is a serious threat to Lake of the Falls, and managed to recruit four new volunteers to help next summer in our effort to keep it under control. Yay!

Our website has moved!

Our fancy new website is now being hosted by Lakekit.net, a network of Wisconsin lake organizations who collectively help each other build and maintain their websites without needing extensive technical knowledge. What this means to us is that our site now has better security, frequent back-ups, looks really cool (at least I think so),  and that we may be able to add more features in the future. It’s also a lot easier to work with! Our gmail address is still the same, lofassociation@gmail.com, so if there is anything you would like to contribute just send it along and we’ll be happy to put it up. Comments are enabled, but if you subscribed to the website in the past you may have to re-subscribe. We are still working on that and will let you know.

 

The minutes of the May 30th LOFA Board meeting can be read here. The Annual Meeting and Picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 1st. More information on that will be available as we get closer to the day. It will be great to see everyone again!

Suggested revisions to the bylaws, and a rainbow!

LOFA members, please click here to review the revisions to the bylaws that were submitted at last week’s Annual Meeting by Board member Jim Hannemann. If you have any comments, email them to lofassociation@gmail.com or talk to any Board member before the September 2nd Board meeting. (The current version of our bylaws can be read here.) Thanks.

And while you’re doing that, enjoy this beautiful rainbow over the lake, captured on film (or whatever) by Di Sino. Thanks for the picture, Di! (To really appreciate this, click on the picture to enlarge.)

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.
