Bi Yearly Meeting
Due to Corona Virus Our June 13th meeting has been cancelled. Our August 8th meeting is still on schedule as planned. We were able to get some of our spring work finished. Two goose and swan egg oiling trips were accomplished on April 4th and April 26th. These trips produced 67 goose and 12 swan eggs. This year was really tough due to weather and the birds moving their nests further into the wetlands making it harder or impossible to get to. At this time, we are permitted by the DNR and have permission to only do Snow Lake. Any other lake or stream is not on our permit. The purpose in the oiling is to control the population to a safer more controlled amount.
We have two new volunteers to help with our Lake buoys. Because of bad weather and the need for a work boat we hope to get these put in ASAP. If anyone has an older pontoon and is willing to drive it to help please contact Steve Schroeder (260) 905-6930.
We appreciate any donation that you are able to give to the fireworks display. It’s such a nice tradition to go over by boat and have a truly special night.
SAT. Evening July 4th Lake James 1st Basin
Did you know…Lake James does not organize the fireworks on the fourth of July. However, local lake residents make up The Lakes Recreation Association, The DONATIONS from the residents on Lake James, Jimmerson Lake and Snow Lake provide the funds that support the show. Sending your donation along with your membership is the easiest way. Your dollars go to the LRA who, in turn, pays the fireworks company.
CAN YOU BELIEVE…those neighborsOver the past few summers there have been more and more complaints of lake residents cutting or raking weeds from their beaches dumping and/or letting them float away into deep water. As the winds blow, so do the weeds, ending up across the lake or down the shore line. Please be a good lake property owner, and dispose of properly.
WE Need Volunteers
Is your lake property important to you? Do you have skills you could share to make our Lake better or help our Association?Are you concerned about the Environment?
