Summer Update

Summer is well underway, and it’s a great time of the year to be at the lake.  The eagles and loons have been seen nesting, the wildflowers are blooming, dragonflies have hatched and hopefully are gorging on mosquitos!

Our annual VVLA meeting is set for 10 a.m. on July 16th at the Pipke Park building in Presque Isle.  The Association Board is looking forward to greeting neighbors and updating you on the latest lake news.

In other news, our Clean Boats, Clean Waters interns have started their summer work at the boat landing.   Two of the interns, Mary and Michael will be giving a short informative presentation at our meeting.

After the business meeting we will have a potluck lunch which we hope you will plan to bring a special dish to share. Please bring your own table settings and beverages.

See you all on Saturday, July 16th!



4th of July Fun

Independence Day is just around the corner which means the return of our Annual Boat Regatta & Parade.

Beginning at NOON, Monday July 4th gather in front of the Schroeder’s dock, directly across from Novak Island on the east side of the lake with your watercraft.

Decorate your boat, wear your red, white, and blue clothing, and prepare to leisurely circle the lake in celebration.  Or if you prefer, just to sit out on your dock & wave to those out on the boat parade.

See you all on the 4th!
