Van Vliet Lake Association News

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!

2022 Annual Meeting

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 16 for our annual meeting.  We will meet at the Pipke Park building again and the business meeting begins at 10 a.m.  We hope to schedule a speaker this year.

Annual Meeting Minutes

Minutes are now available from our annual meeting.  Thank you to all who attended.

Ed and LaVergne Brodsky had an unexpected visitor on their deck!  Also check out the beautiful seed pod photo from Ed that is now front and center in our plants gallery.

Annual Meeting July 17, 2021

Our meeting will be held at the Pipke Park pavilion starting at 10 a.m.  We plan to let everyone socialize until 10:30 when the business meeting will start.

Did you spend time on a hobby during the pandemic?  As an icebreaker, we ask you to consider bringing an item to display for our “Covid Craft Corner”.  Let’s see how creative a group we are!

The Board has created a Welcome packet for new owners with a letter and several brochures.  We are in the process of reaching out to meet new neighbors.  We also hope that owners who rent their property will keep a folder available for their guests.  We will have these available at the meeting.

Our business meeting will include election of officers and discussion of some of the items of concern that members have contacted us about over the past year.

After the meeting, plan to stay for lunch.  Instead of our usual potluck, we are asking everyone to bring their own picnic lunch.  The VVLA will supply cold beverages.

Please support our efforts by attending!

2021 Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting is set for Saturday, July 17 starting at 10 a.m. at Pipke Park.  The building there has garage doors that open on both sides to provide an open air environment.  We will have a short business meeting followed by a social hour  and picnic lunch.

The Discovery Center has been coordinating a project to create an accurate record of lake levels since 2009.  Van Vliet Lake has been at relatively high levels the last few years.  This spring we are starting out with lower water so it will be interesting to see what happens this summer.
