We the officers, representatives, and you as members of The Snow Lake Cottager’s Association are dedicated to preserving one of the most beautiful lakes in Steuben County, our very own Snow Lake. Each year it becomes more important to work together to meet the Environmental challenges of our lake. We as property owners need to do the responsible work needed to maintain and care for OUR lake. This is where your membership is essential in this battle. Over the course of four years we have worked very hard at increasing membership, lake signage, quality of lake waters, invasive weed control, and building a community feeling again on Snow Lake. We want to hear from you. Let us know what community ideas you have or would like to take part in on Snow Lake. In the past we have had Reflections on the Lake, a history presentation of the lake with boat rides and home tours. Snow Lake Night Out was introduced last year with dinner at local restaurants and prize give-a-ways. Contact Ami Absher with your ideas. (419) 460-4090
This past year an Environmental Lake Study was done by Scott Banfield of Aquatic Enhancement. We will go over the results at the June 8th General Meeting. Spraying for purple loosestrife was completed this year. The cost of study and spraying alone was over $10,000.00. We applied this January for a L.A.R.E Grant in order to receive financial help in continuing these efforts.
Bi Annual SLCA General Meeting
June 8th, 2019 9:00 am
Fremont Moose Lodge 2051 Toledo St. (State Rd. 120) Fremont, Indiana 46737
This year’s focus will be maintaining the environmental health of our lake and what we can each do as property owners to ensure this. Our Guest Speaker for our June 8th General Meeting will be Alysson Oliger, DNR Compliance Coordinator/ Environmental Manager. She will be educating us on the rules and regulations of the lake. Many have questions as to what is allowed when cleaning or raking personal lakefront waters as weed control is affected by these actions. It is important as owners we keep our lake clean and environmentally healthy to maintain our property values. Please join us for this very important session. Steve Schroeder ~SLCA President
